Port of Brookings Harbor: Four vie for two positions

Two positions on the Port of Brookings Harbor port commission are up for contest in this May’s election. Position 2 will see incumbent Jim Relaford face off against Roger Thompson. Skip Watwood will challenge incumbent Roy Davis for Position 3. 

The volunteer commissioners oversee the port district, which extends from Pistol River to the California border and includes about 14,000 citizens. 

This year, the port worked with an income budget of about $3.8 million. Candidates have identified several key issues facing the port, including the possibility of annexation and sale of port property, economic development and increasing tourism.
