As Councilman Jake Fey was convening a joint Tacoma City Council committee meeting Wednesday, he saw Tacoma Port Commissioner Clare Petrich signing in.
Membership has its privileges, apparently, as Fey invited “Commissioner Petrich” to join the committee members up at the front table.
“I’m not here as Commissioner Petrich,” she said. “I’m here as Clare Petrich of Petrich Marine Dock.”
Said Councilwoman Lauren Walker: “Then you can sit in the back, Clare.”
