Poulsbo Port Commissioner race too close to call

Port of Poulsbo

Position 1

The Port of Poulsbo Commissioner race between incumbent Tony DeCarlo and challenger Nan Mader Tuesday was too close to call. DeCarlo Tuesday night led by a small margin of 676 to 621.

DeCarlo has served as commissioner for one term and has 30 years of experience with Navy ships. He said the rock wall at the port was his biggest concern as was working with the city toward a solution.

“That sounds pretty good but there’s quite a few more votes to count,” DeCarlo said of his early lead. “But it’s too close to tell right now and I don’t want to count my chickens before they hatch.”

Mader, a member of the Poulsbo Planning Commission for 10 years, stressed that spending at the port had to be more controlled and that the failing rock wall along Liberty Bay and Waterfront Park should be replaced.

Position 2

Incumbent Port of Poulsbo Commissioner Glenn Gilbert was locked in a tight race against position 2 challenger Richard Nutter in the Tuesday general election.

Gilbert posted a l586 to 565-vote lead, according to late night counts, putting him ahead 51 percent to Nutter’s 49 percent.

If elected, Gilbert said he is looking forward to a partnership with Poulsbo to repair a sloughing rock wall.
