Ensuring Responsible, Sustainable Growth
As a fifth-generation Seattle area resident, Grant knows that while Sea-Tac and the marine terminals have been essential to regional growth, future growth must be carefully planned and delivered, and meet or exceed targets for carbon reduction and Puget Sound protection. Grant will fight for continued investment in cleaner fuels, conversion of port vehicles and truck fleets, and other important environmental reforms.
Supporting People and Communities
The lines at the airport are too long. The airport must be a better neighbor, expand opportunities for family wage jobs, and ensure equity in contracting to create opportunities for minority, LGBTQ, and women-owned businesses. As the “front door” to our region, our port facilities must be welcoming places for all who visit, work, or come seeking a better life.
Being Transparent and Accountable to YOU
As past chair of the Washington Public Disclosure Commission Grant will advocate for open, transparent, and accountable Port operations. The Port will be spending billions of dollars on capital projects in the coming decade, and Grant believes the people of King County deserve a meaningful chance to participate in planning the Port’s future.
