Mr. Schilperoort was elected to the Commission in November 2018 and began serving in January 2019. He has spent his career as a mint buyer for a large, multinational corporation and also owns his own farm. As a life-long Sunnyside resident he felt that it was time for him to give back to the community by serving as Port commissioner. He believes his experience as a business owner provides him the local perspective needed to take on Port issues. One of Commissioner Schilperoort’s main goals is to keep local citizens in town by bringing in more family-wage jobs to the community. To do this, Commissioner Schilperoort believes the Port needs to continue its aggressive efforts in bringing new industries to Sunnyside.
