Cary to Lary: Carry a Big Stick But …

In case you missed it, there’s a new blogger in town. Cary Bozeman, former Bremerton Mayor and current CEO of the Port of Bremerton, launched the aptly named Bozeman Blog Sept. 14.

As with our other reader blogs, Bozeman’s comes headed with the following disclaimer: “The Kitsap Sun neither edits nor previews reader blog posts. Their content is the sole creation and responsibility of the readers who produce them.”

Today, Bozeman recapped his power lunch with Port Orchard Mayor Lary Coppola. Coppola has said he admires Bozeman and aspires to emulate his git-er-done attitude and its impact on Bremerton.

In the post, Bozeman shares some advice he had for Coppola. He wrote:

“Yesterday I met Mayor Lary Coppola for lunch in his wonderful City of Port Orchard. The man gets it, he knows what he wants to accomplish, and is a little like a bull in a china shop in his effort to get some things done. I like Lary, I like people who get stuff done, but sometimes I remind the Mayor that its ok to carry a big stick just dont use it all the time.”

Bozeman goes on to say the port wants to partner with both Port Orchard and Bremerton to promote their economic development. Steve Gardner, who writes the Bremerton Beat, and I have some fun with the perception of rivalry between the two towns. It will be interesting to see how Bozeman’s pledge plays out, especially if limited funding is at stake. Stay tuned.
