Port commissioners will consider CEO’s side gig Sept. 11 | Politics Northwest | Seattle Times

Seeking an outside is what they should have done as part of their standard process.

The commission is likely to seek a second, outside opinion on whether CEO Tay Yoshitani’s position on the board is a conflict of interest, said Commission Chairwoman Gael Tarleton.

Maybe the Port wasn't in the best position, politically, ethically, and otherwise, to be picking a fight with Sonics fans.
Their problems run pretty deep, are many, are systemic.
They should have looked for a path to compromise months ago, but didn't.
They should have done a lot of things much more important than fighting an arena that has negligable impact to them.

This is not going to end well for the Port.
It's not going to end with just the CEO.

Have a great day,
Mike Baker
