Did you know that Washington state has the largest locally controlled port system in the world? And not all of those ports are on the water. Ports also operate airports, railroads, business parks and industrial sites.
In this latest addition to SAO’s #Gov 101 series, we explore Washington’s 80 port districts, including how they’re governed, how they finance their operations, and how you can participate at your local port district.
Do you have questions about ports after watching this video? Don’t hesitate to email us at Center@sao.wa.gov. We’d love to answer your questions and direct you to more resources!
