KINGSTON — The Port of Kingston will introduce two locals as the new leadership of its passenger ferry service Tuesday. The port has chosen Meisha Rouser of Kingston to manage the SoundRunner program. Ken Brazeau, also of Kingston, will oversee day-to-day ferry operations and serve as a full-time captain.

Port of Kingston Commission Chair Pete DeBoer said the commission interviewed candidates in an executive session April 26 and made its decision at a public meeting the following day.

The port will introduce the new managers and give an update on SoundRunner plans Tuesday at 2 p.m. in the port offices. DeBoer said the service is still on track to relaunch by June 1.

SoundRunner began operating between Kingston and downtown Seattle in October 2010. The port suspended the service in November, after a month of rough weather, mechanical breakdowns and logistical problems. This spring a volunteer advisory committee has helped the commission plan a relaunch of SoundRunner.
