PORT ORCHARD — Gary Anderson, a South Kitsap resident and activist, announced Thursday that he is running for the Port of Bremerton’s District 2 commissioner seat.

Current commissioner for District 2, Larry Stokes, hasn’t revealed whether he will run for another term. That district represents downtown Port Orchard and portions of the eastern part of South Kitsap.

Anderson owns and operates G Anderson Group, a commercial and residential brokerage firm, and has been involved in land use and business development issues in Kitsap County for more than 30 years, according to a news release distributed Thursday.

“I’m looking forward to contributing my experience and track record as a Port commissioner,” Anderson said. “The Port of Bremerton can become even more effective in their mission to support economic growth and community amenities while protecting the taxpayers and families of the Port district.

“I will bring a fresh perspective as a business owner, employer and leader in our community that can add immense value to the mission of the Port while working effectively with my fellow commissioners and Port staff.”

Anderson is a 1973 graduate of South Kitsap High School. He received an associate degree from Olympic College and a bachelor’s degree from Central Washington University in 1977. He serves on the Port Orchard Chamber of Commerce board of directors, is a member of the Port Orchard Rotary and was a two-term president of the Kitsap County Association of Realtors.

The Port commission candidate is married to Susan. The couple has two children.
