Each year the Jefferson County Chamber of Commerce presents Leadership Awards in four categories: Business Leader, Citizen, Rising Entrepreneur, Young Professional, and Future Business Leader from our County’s youth. Pete and Kathy Langley are the 2023 recipients of the Business Leaders of the Year Award. They’ve been married and in business together at Port Townsend Foundry for over 40 years. Together, Pete and Kathy share a life commitment to the phrase, “A Rising Tide lifts all boats.” Both of them freely admit that it takes the two of them together to run their business! KPTZ’s Chris Bricker joins co-hosts Port of Port Townsend’s Director Eron Berg and Port Commissioner Pam Petranek for a Port update, and then a conversation with Pete and Kathy about what it means to create a “circular economy” here in this region, about their leadership and mentorship roles, and their longstanding involvement in our beloved community.
