Opposed to port annexation measure II

They are at it again. Vote “no” on Port of Poulsbo’s annexation. This is not about citizens’ participation; it’s taking more property rights and money from you.

Opposed to port annexation measure

Once again, the Port of Poulsbo commissioners are attempting to expand their tax base to include the greater surrounding Poulsbo area.

I, along with commissioners Rutledge and DeSalvo, fielded questions and explained our perspectives.
