Attorney general opinion in Poulsbo Port case

Brynn writes:

Don’t know why I didn’t do this before. For those of you following the Port of Poulsbo and some of the recent contention coming from the commission, here is the opinion issued at the end of last month by the Attorney General’s Office on whether sitting Commissioner Arnold Bockus could appoint himself to a vacancy on the board.

It includes a lot of legal speak, but if you’re looking for clarity here’s the original story I wrote when the opinion was issued. Assistant attorney general Tim Ford sums up in his first quote what the AG’s Office ruled in the informal opinion. Take note of the footnotes, this is where the AG’s Office differs in opinion from port Commissioner Tony DeCarlo and port attorney Gregory Norbut. Norbut and DeCarlo interpret the footnotes one way, while the AG’s Office interprets them another way.
