Making the List

Bremerton Mayor Cary Bozeman was listed as a newsmaker for 2006 in the Puget Sound Business Journal’s Dec. 22-28 edition.

I’d post the link, but you can’t read it online unless you’re a subscriber, so I won’t bother.

Bozeman was categorized as an “innovator” in a story detailing Bremerton’s waterfront condo development, new parks, building renovations, wireless Internet downtown and the future development of the former J.C. Penney building, owned by the Bremer Trust and used as a parking lot.

The magazine reports Bozeman “has made it his personal mission to bring vitality and people to a formerly struggling waterfront, and as a result his city is on a building binge.”

Bozeman is joined on the innovators list by Expedia and Zillow Web business builder Rich Barton, Seattle Children’s Hospital and Regional Medical Center President Dr. Thomas Hansen, China President Hu Jintao and Ray Ozzie, who replaces Bill Gates as Microsoft as chief software architect.

Also on the newsmaker list is William Marler, a Bainbridge Island resident and lawyer who has made a name for himself fighting companies over E. coli outbreaks. He’s on PSBJ’s list of “fighters.” Marler first became prominent by fighting Jack in the Box in 1993 for its E. coli outbreak. Most recently he sued Taco Bell parent company Yum! Foods after E. coli was traced to green onions used in its food. Marler is joined on the list of fighters by Seattle City Council President Nick Licata and U.S. Rep. Dave Reichart, R-Auburn.
