Response to editorial about port pay
Sheila Mengert and you got it: transparency and fraud, waste and abuse, especially in non-accountable, quasi-government activities (“Port should develop a policy regarding pay,” editorial, page A4, Feb. 28 Herald; “Port of Poulsbo should get back to basics,” letters to the editor, page A4, Feb. 21 Herald).
This came up by the 2006 citizens committee that put together the six-year plan for the Port of Poulsbo.
Thanks, Richard Walker!
Editor’s note: The Herald’s editorial did not state that there is fraud, waste or abuse at the Poulsbo Port District. In fact, the port commission has received compensation that is below the allowed threshold. The editorial proposed that the port establish parameters regarding pay in order to prevent abuse.
