Port appoints Paul Gerola as interim director

The Port of Walla Walla’s longtime economic development director will take the administrative helm of the agency during a search for a new executive director.

Paul Gerola was unanimously appointed by the three Port commissioners Thursday to serve as interim director until a new one is hired to succeed Jim Kuntz.

The commission meeting was Kuntz’s last — believed to be his 312th over the last 26-plus years — before his departure at the end of today.
