No interest in increasing Port of Bremerton boardAugust 15th, 2012 by Rachel Pritchett
BREMERTON NATIONAL AIRPORT — It floated like a lead balloon in 2010 when former Port of Bremerton Commissioner Bill Mahan proposed enlarging the port’s Board of Commissioners from three members to five.
Thus was the case again Tuesday night when Commissioner Roger Zabinski timidly asked whether there was any interest in taking up the matter in a future study session.
“It’s really difficult for two commissioners to talk,” he said of the conundrum that happens when two of three commissioner talk with each other, violating government open-meeting law.
“Is there interest to even have discussion at a study session?” Zabinski asked.
Besides a few guffaws, there apparently was zero reaction.
The matter was quickly discarded.
