Port Angeles port director resigns then rehired

PORT ANGELES  (AP) — Port of Port Angeles Executive Director Jeff Robb resigned Monday because of health issues and then was immediately hired to a newly created position at the same salary of $138,000 a year.

The Peninsula Daily News reports port commissioners approved the deal on a 2-1 vote over the objection of those who called it a sweetheart deal.

The 59-year-old Sequim man said he intends to retire in July 2014 when he can take state retirement benefits after serving 30 years in government.

Robb’s wife Laura said he has stress issues. His new job as port director of environmental affairs does not have an official job description and was never posted as a job opening by the port.
