Your vote this spring election could help the Port of Astoria become the strong economic force it should be. The port needs forthright, competent and cooperative leadership from the port commissioners. Frank Spence, candidate for Position 5, could help move port governance in the right direction.

Frank has decades of experience in leadership. He was the manager of several Florida cities and counties; he ran a large hospital in Saudi Arabia; and has served locally on the Astoria City Planning Commission and the Port Budget Committee. He gets along well with others and knows how to rein in the nut cases, vital skills for a port post.

Frank cannot fix the port by himself, but a vote for him is one solid thing you can do to put the Port on its feet again. It’s time to take the Port back.
