Richard Marks for Harbor Commissioner Division 4.

Looks like I have an opponent for my Harbor Commission seat. Below is my Campaign Statement.


Richard Marks                                                                      Age: 61

Occupation:  Commissioner, Humboldt Bay Division 4

I am running for re-election to continue to bring real economic balance and environmental stewardship to the district.

From an economic development and job creation perspective the district has been on a path of growth. This commission continues to be successful in working with our elected representatives at the state and congressional levels to lobby the Army Corps of Engineers for the continued dredging of Humboldt Bay even through lean years – ship traffic wise.

This commission successfully acquired the former Evergreen Pulp Mill with its many assets, including a commercial dock, needed warehousing, ocean outfall and other infrastructure that would have cost tens of millions to replace.  The Harbor District successfully worked with the EPA to safely remove nearly 3 million gallons of caustic chemicals to be repurposed at another pulp mill in Washington.

The Harbor Commission continues to support the fish cleaning station at Shelter Cove and has made many environmental improvements, including repairing the breakwater structure protecting the harbor.

The District has never been more transparent and accessible. I look forward to continuing that momentum.

Richard Marks 4th Division Commissioner
Humboldt Bay Harbor, Recreation and Conservation District
