An Open Letter to the Port of Bellingham Commissioners

artist: Hilary Cole

I am concerned with both the slow pace of development of the Granary building and what appears to be a significant lack of integrity of Harcourt Bellingham, LLC. Based on news reports, they appear to be more of a buy-low, sell-high outfit rather than being in the business of creating value.

Given these circumstances, I encourage you to maintain a high level of scrutiny and diligence over the months ahead to ensure that our tax dollars are spent in ways that most benefit Whatcom County citizens over foreign investors and unreliable businesses with questionable motives.

Thank you,

John Hatten
