Letter: Robust port has plenty of options

What kinds of economic development would I support at the port?

I would support projects that provide the most benefit, for the most people, for the longest time, with the least possible harm. There could be a long list of projects that would meet that standard: import and export of electric cars, Tesla batteries, quinoa, solar panels, wind turbine components and other 21st century jobs, and tourism.

The port is not limited to moving bulk cargo. It can support many other types of economic development. An oil terminal does not meet my criteria. Neither do other fossil fuel infrastructure projects.
