News Locke Vs. Ceis for Port Job?
posted by December 27 at 14:22 PMon
The rumor mill has long placed Seattle deputy mayor Tim Ceis as a lead candidate to replace outgoing Port of Seattle CEO, Mic Dinsmore.
The new rumor is that Ceis’s competition for the gig is fomer Governor Gary Locke. Locke currently works at Davis Wright Tremaine, where he’s evidently bored to be out of the political mix.
I’ve got a call into Locke’s office to see if he’s going for the Port of Seattle job.
UPDATE: Locke’s secretary at Davis Wright Tremaine said Locke is out of town, and won’t be back until next week to comment. A source at the Port, well-placed and close to the hiring process, wouldn’t comment on the rumor, but certainly didn’t dispute it.
