  • Joel Hansen is running a progressive campaign for Port of Olympia commissioner in District 3. He works at a solar energy company, and serves on both the Port of Olympia Citizens Advisory Committee and Tumwater Planning Commission and as a precinct committee officer. He is running to put his expertise in finance and environmental science to use in order to strengthen the port economy without compromising on climate action.

    If elected, Hansen wants to take a holistic approach to the commissioner position in order to generate living wage jobs, attract local eco-friendly business, and engage an equity lens for port policy making. He says he will listen to constituents about port issues and seek to better the communications between commissioners and those who live and work near the port. Further, Hansen wants to advance environmental justice, and social justice broadly. He is supported by a number of local progressives and community leaders in this race, and he is a good choice if you are looking for strong progressive leadership and a new perspective on the port.
