Meet Ryan Calkins, Candidate for Port Commission
and Special Guest Chris Roberts, Mayor of Shoreline
September 30th at 2pm at Jersey's Great Food and Spirits

Campaign statement

Ryan Calkins is a business owner, nonprofit professional and lifelong Democrat active in progressive politics. For over ten years, Ryan ran an import company, working directly with shipping operations at the Port. He now works for Ventures, a nonprofit that supports low-income entrepreneurs as they start and grow their businesses.

As Port Commissioner, Ryan will work to:
-Support local businesses in creating good, family-wage jobs
-Act as a custodian to our local environment, by making the Port as efficient and clean as possible
-Improve transparency around contracting, pay increases, and more

Ryan has been endorsed by The Stranger, Seattle Weekly, 10+ District Democrat groups, including the local 32nd District Democrats, SEIU Local 6, and many other local elected officials. In their endorsement, Seattle Weekly wrote: "No candidate for Port Commissioner has been so precise in his opposition to the Port’s potential role in fossil-fuel extraction...Add to that some very specific ideas for how to use the Port’s authority and dollars to help reduce urban sprawl, wean us from our car addiction, and reduce carbon emissions, and you’ve got a fresh, eco-conscious voice to add to a Commission that could definitely use another shove in that direction."

Learn more about Ryan and his campaign on Saturday, September 30 at Jersey's Great Food and Spirits, 1306 N 175th St Shoreline 98133. Ryan will be joined by special guest Shoreline Mayor Chris Roberts. RSVP on Facebook.
