Stephanie Bowman to join Seattle Port Commission

The Port of Seattle Commission has added Stephanie Bowman, 44, a former manager of federal government affairs for the Port of Tacoma.

Bowman was selected from seven finalists to fill the seat vacated by Rob Holland, who resigned last month. She was a candidate in 2012 for the state House of Representatives, running in the same race as Holland. Both lost in the primary.

Bowman, who worked at the Port of Tacoma from 2006-2011, is currently the executive director for the Washington Asset Building Coalition. About 35 people applied for the Port’s two open positions. Courtney Gregoire was selected last month to fill the position left vacant by Gael Tarleton.

Both Bowman and Gregoire will appear on the 2013 ballot.

Commission President Tom Albro said in a statement that Bowman “has the background and skills to be an outstanding member of our commission and asset to the port. Her in-depth knowledge of port issues will enable her to hit the ground running.”
