It’s our nature to serve.
The Port of Camas-Washougal, a political subdivision of the State of Washington, was established in 1935 to create a favorable climate for economic development in the Camas-Washougal area. The policy board for the Port is made up of three commissioners who are elected to 4-year terms by the voters residing within the Port district. The Commission is the Port district’s governing body responsible for setting policy and enforcing established policies. The Commission may exercise only the powers that are delegated to them by law or pursuant to law.
John Spencer, District 1
John Spencer has served as Commissioner since 2015. His main goals as a Port Commissioner for the Port of Camas-Washougal include: strengthening partnerships among all East County agencies to benefit the community, developing all areas of the Port to support business and job growth, expanding the marina and the airport, and obtaining new land for development. Citizen input is critical to his decision making. His role as a city administrator and a consultant in the field help to fulfill his commitment to create good job opportunities and enduring public facilities.

She is also focused on building and strengthening collaborative public and private partnerships to expand opportunities in both Camas and Washougal. Cassi is a strong believer in the power of civic involvement. As a long-time Camas Parks Commissioner, she values the Port’s parks, trails, and recreational contributions greatly.
