Jaime Herrera Beutler's Statement on the passing of Former Port of Ilwaco Manager Jim Neva:
"It is with great sadness that we learn of Jim's passing. He was not only a passionate advocate who fought tirelessly for the economic health of Pacific County as he served at the Port of Ilwaco. He was also a kind, compassionate and deeply respected member of the community. We are all richer for having known him, and I am honored to have had the opportunity to work with him. Jim's family is in my thoughts and prayers during this time."
