Born and raised on a family farm in Kitsap County, Gary Anderson has more than 30 years of experience in land use and development issues. Starting his career in accounting, he eventually moved into residential real estate, then commercial real estate, real estate development and commercial leasing, before opening his own company in 2011. He has been active in the community, having served on the Board of Directors for the Port Orchard Chamber, as President of the Association of Realtors, and as a member of the Port Orchard Rotary.
“I have held a desire to improve our community's way of life and have put that desire into my efforts as a commercial real estate broker.” Anderson said, “[I] have considered running for Port Commission for the past 10 years to further meet that desire.”
Anderson was elected to serve as Port Commissioner in 2020 for a six-year term and is looking forward to supporting the Port of Bremerton to create economic opportunity and jobs in Kitsap County. He’s focused on helping to improve the quality of life for residents and to uphold the commitment to fiscal responsibility to taxpayers investing in our community.
