BREMERTON — For the 23rd consecutive year, the Port of Bremerton returned a clean bill of financial health from the Washington State Auditor’s office for the fiscal year 2015. But in a sad irony, the person most responsible for that performance did not get to celebrate.

The Port of Bremerton’s chief financial officer and the person most responsible for the Port’s sterling financial performance, Becky Swanson, passed away on Sept. 14. She had suffered from cancer for a lengthy period. The results of the audit were released the following day.

“She was the backbone of the Port’s financial affairs, and had been for the entire 15 years she was here,” said Port Commissioner Cary Bozeman. “She will be missed.”

State auditors reported no deficiencies or financial irregularities in the Port’s financial reporting or federal programs. The report was published on Sept. 15.

The full Financial Statements and Federal Single Audit report is available on the Port’s website, www.portofbremerton.org. The audit period reviewed was from Jan. 1, 2015, through Dec. 31, 2015.
