One by one, city council makes appointments to Harbor Commission

The Bainbridge Island City Council moved Wednesday to fill the depleted ranks of its Harbor Commission.

The council approved the appointments of:

George Briggs for Position 4, a two-year term;

Elise Wright for Position 5, a three-year term;

Sandra Davis for Position 6, a three-year term; and

Thomas Hudson for Position 7, a three-year term.

Briggs works as the vice president of field operations for Ozone International. He is a lifelong boater and a former Navy sailor.

Wright is the vice president of Bainbridge Island Concerned Citizens and a longtime boater.

Davis is a managing partner of ECO Resource Group, and is co-founder of Prepared Neighborhoods. She has previously volunteered for the city as a member of the Harbor Commission and the city’s Ethics Board.

Hudson is the president of Hudson Construction, and is a boat owner.

The council used the traditional approach of confirming the appointments on a one-by-one basis. Each candidate received an individual confirmation vote.

That approach avoided a replay of the controversy on the dais from late last year, when some on the council tried but failed to approve a pack of candidates for the planning commission on a single vote.
