Frank Spence is running for a seat on the Port of Astoria Commission. My support for Frank couldn’t be stronger.
Frank has a work history as a city and county manager over a 45-year career. He moved here to be closer to his family and immediately involved himself in a dozen groups over his four years, including Kiwanis, North Coast Chorale, the Columbia River Maritime Museum, the Astoria Senior Center, the Astoria Downtown Historic District Association, a cruise host and the Astoria Planning Commission. He has served on the port’s Budget Committee for two years and understands their complicated organization. He has focus, intelligence and energy. He knows how to work collaboratively with others.
I’ve served on the planning commission and the county’s Charter Review Committee with Frank. He shows up well prepared, asks good questions and is able to take principled stands.
The Port of Astoria needs him as a commissioner.
