Mahlon Hull’s executive, scientific, engineering, and leadership experience will provide a bright future for the Port of Skagit. He will find ways to create more business opportunities, jobs, and community involvement.
Port assets continue to grow in both complexity and size. The current request for proposals and projects of solar Arrays, Bio Water conversion development, wetland management, airport industrial development, agricultural impacts, and marina land improvements, needs a fresh perspective by a proven experienced leader in the scientific and engineering profession.
He is qualified in disaster preparedness and has both lead, and participated in, multiple major crisis situations around the world and at the national level.
I look forward to cooperating with the other Port Commissioners from Districts 1 and 2 to advance Skagit County resources and residents into the future.
There is no better place to live, and we need technically informed, experienced leadership for the next District 3 Port Commissioner.

Maintenance and Upgrades
I believe the marina needs to have a Dock slip size upgrade. Often times the less than 30 foot slip sizes go unfilled. As Port Commissioner I will be sure these are re-done so that boats from 35 - 45 feet have more slips available.
It's no secret that La Conner slips are more expensive due to the Swinomish channel unloading tons of silt into the Marina each year. The cost of silt removal is on the order of nearly $1 million per year. This needs to be revisited by new technology that both improves the issue and reduces the environmental impact of dredging.
Like Mavrik Marine, Dunlap Towing Company, Tomco Marine Group, Inc., Hedlin Farms, Ibbetson Yacht Solutions, Inc., Design Techniques to name a few.
Maintenance and Upgrades
Business is how we maintain the great features of our airport. These business pay taxes that keep the tax payers in Skagit County from funding the airport. More Business means less taxes - perfect relationship and a key reason for the runway length to be increased!
Unlike Arlington, Skagit has the full capability to lengthen our main Runway 29-11. It currently is 5,477 feet long but should be 7,000 feet to accommodate larger cargo aircraft making it very unique and usable by more businesses. The FAA will fund 90% of this cost, Washington State will fund 5%, and as a Port Commissioner I will be sure we raise the additional 5% to make this improvement a reality.
We need to ensure our local air traffic has a solid future here at Skagit Regional. Of the 33,000 landings per year here, 28,000 are General Aviation aircraft and it makes the FAA more than happy to keep our airport at the top of their funding list. I will back and support all efforts to keep Skagit wide open for General Aviation aircraft.

SWIFT Center (Sedro-Woolley Innovation for Tomorrow)
The Port granted Sedro Woolley 12 acres of land to develop into a Park for residents to enjoy!
Many Structures in the SWIFT project need attention. I intend to partner with Businesses and the community to be sure these structures are improved and preserved for future use.
