Congratulations Commissioner Allan Erickson!
The newly appointed Commissioner Allan Erickson officially joined the Port of Longview Board of Commissioners after Bob Bagaason vacated his seat. Cowlitz County District Court Judge John Hays presented over the swearing in of Erickson, who represented the Commission’s 3rd District.
"I am honored to help guide port leadership as we build on the momentum of recent successes," Erickson said in the release. "One of my goals as commissioner is to work toward building more family-wage jobs for the citizens of the port district."
Erickson is a lifelong local resident. He worked in the printing industry for more than 40 years before his retirement and actively participates in local community organizations. Erickson earned his bachelor’s degree in political science from the University of Washington.
