Port of Vancouver Commissioner Don Orange announced that he is running for reelection this year.
“The recent chemical train derailment in Ohio and resulting sicknesses that people there are now suffering has got me fired up more than ever to continue serving as a Port Commissioner,” Orange said in a statement to the press. “I’m going to keep asking the hard questions, with a focus on safety, fiscal responsibility, and bringing in the right projects that keep this a great place to live and raise a family.”
Orange was first elected to the port commission in 2017. His campaign at the time focused on opposing a proposed oil terminal at the port. He’s seeking a second six-year term as commissioner.
