Port partners support local jobs, economic vitality, and more

July 8, 2021 | Archive

Each year the Port of Anacortes recognizes outstanding strategic partners for their service to the Port and the Anacortes community. Our Port Partner Awards recognize people and organizations that significantly increase economic activity at the Port, help us achieve the goals and strategies defined in our Strategic Plan, and provide extraordinary customer service to the Port or one of our partners.

On July 6 we awarded U.S. Representative Rick Larsen our 2021 Strategic Partner Award for his consistent support and leadership. Rep. Larsen’s advocacy allowed us to receive key permits for A-Dock construction, improve the Cap Sante Marina through deauthorization of a federal waterway, and to secure funding maintaining operations at the Anacortes Airport through the COVID-19 pandemic.

It’s partners like Rep. Larsen whose support helps the Port provide jobs, economic vitality, and community and environmental benefits to Skagit County and Anacortes. We are grateful for his partnership and hard work on behalf of the Port and our community.

We also recognized two other partners with 2021 Port Partner awards this summer: Skagit County’s Board of Commissioners and Port consultant Moffat & Nichol. Read more about this year’s award winners in our news release.
