Port of Tacoma

The Port of Tacoma commission sets policy and strategic direction, and authorizes all major expenditures.

Our port is among the largest container ports in North America, and a major center for autos, bulk, breakbulk and heavy-lift cargoes.

The economic impact of the port includes real estate and marine cargo operations supporting more than 29,000 jobs and generating nearly $3 billion in economic activity for our community.

 The Port works to create jobs and economic growth for our community and the region.

We will hear from the candidates for the two Port Commission positions on the November ballot:

Position #3 – Frank Boykin and Deanna Keller

Position #5 – Kristin Ang and Dave Bryant
