The Port of Seattle Commission has selected Courtney Gregoire to an open seat on the five-member commission. Gregoire, 33, of Seattle, is an attorney for Microsoft and the daughter of former Gov. Christine Gregoire.

The commission selected Gregoire from a field of 29. She was one of five finalists for the seat, left open when former Commissioner Gael Tarleton joined the state House of Representatives. Gregoire will have to run to retain the seat in November. If voters choose her, she will serve a two-year term.

Commission President Tom Albro said he was impressed by Gregoire’s vision and long-term perspective on the Port job. She brings “a proactive sense of engaging on policy,” he said.

Gregoire said she is excited to work toward the goals in the Port Commission’s 20-year plan, and said a strategy to get there must include working as a team with the Port of Tacoma and other elected bodies.

Gregoire will join the commission March 15.
