Founded in 1911 by a vote of the people as a special purpose government, the Port of Seattle's mission is to promote economic opportunities and quality of life in the region by advancing trade, travel, commerce, and job creation in an equitable, accountable, and environmentally responsible manner.
These bylaws constitute the rules governing the transaction of business by the duly elected Port of Seattle Commission. Commissioners shall faithfully, ethically, and transparently perform all duties of office and shall abide by the principle that public service is a public trust. It is the goal of these bylaws to outline the transaction of business in a way that appropriately safeguards the rights of the majority, minority, and individual within the body politic of the Port of Seattle Commission.
