President's Letter

PLVC Letterhead

September 1, 2023

Dear Port Ludlow Property Owners,

We are very pleased to announce that his year’s Annual Members Meeting will be held in-person on Thursday, October 5 starting at 3PM in the Bay Club Auditorium at 120 Spinnaker Place. The results of this year’s election of four directors for the Village Council’s board will be announced at the meeting and a Year-in-Review will be presented highlighting the various activities your Village Council has undertaken in pursuit of its mission to protect, preserve, promote, and unify the Port Ludlow community.

The Village Council relies on two things to accomplish its mission. First are the countless hours of effort volunteered by community members. With the Honor Roll at the end of this letter we wish to acknowledge and thank the 172 individuals who have given their time and expertise in support of our community. As is increasingly the case with volunteer organizations, as many as appear on our Honor Roll, it is still a small percentage of the population we serve. You are encouraged to contact any of our directors or visit our website at plvc.org to explore opportunities for your participation. Many hands make light work.

The second thing we rely on is your generous financial support. As everywhere, costs continue to rise; both direct costs for the resources to support the many committee activities, as well as indirect or overhead costs (e.g., insurance). We ask that you consider donating $25 or more during this election cycle. You can do so online during the voting process, or at any time on our website at plvc.org. All online donations are secured through a third-party service provider. You may also donate by check written to PLVC and left in the ballot boxes at either of the HOA clubhouses or mailed to P.O. Box 65012, Port Ludlow. As a 501(c)(3) your donation may be tax deductible. Any amount is appreciated and will help enable the continued work of your Village Council.

Thank you for being part of the wonderful Port Ludlow community and for your support of the Village Council.

David McDermid, President

Candidate Biographies

Candidate: John Goldwood

Hi – I’m John Goldwood and look forward to serving on the PLVC Board of Directors. My wife Kristi and I arrived in Port Ludlow in February 2019 shortly after our retirement.

After early years in the Midwest (Ohio and Illinois) I arrived in the Pacific Northwest over 50 years ago courtesy of a scholarship to the University of Puget Sound. With brief departures for Alaska in the late 1970’s, and to Los Angeles for the six years prior to retirement, the Pacific Northwest has been my home.

My career was focused on over 35 years of business development in the medical software industry, working with software companies who provide applications to enhance electronic medical record solutions in medical offices, hospitals, and integrated delivery networks.

I have served a year on our Trails Committee, a year as a contributing writer and features editor for the Port Ludlow Voice and have shared the joy of four years of frigid mornings hanging holiday lights at the Village Center. I currently serve on the board of Greenview Village HOA, and coordinate Styrofoam collection efforts here in Port Ludlow. Other volunteer efforts include serving on the administrative board of First Presbyterian Church of Port Townsend, as well as volunteering with several local Natural History organizations including the Jefferson Land Trust and Friends of Fort Flagler.

Candidate: Paul Hinton

My name is Paul Hinton. My last employment was with Boeing. When I had a weekend off, I would often ride the ferries for the sheer pleasure of the natural beauty viewed from the water.

One of those rides took me to Port Townsend. I was hooked. After I retired and my grandchildren reached adulthood, I succumbed to the call of the Northwest and moved to Port Ludlow in 2016. It was and remains wonderful.

I have served on the Village Council starting in 2016 continuing to the present time. I believe our primary mission of preserving the beauty of this place is worth our best effort and hope to continue in that work.


Candidate: Adina Rivers

My name is Adina Rivers, an invested member of the community. I hope to serve as Secretary on the PLVC Board and be a member of the Communications committee. I believe that I have valuable experience for these positions. I’m a grandmother to five grandchildren and three step-grandchildren. I am a native of Louisiana, in the New Orleans Metro area.

Once my husband and I decided to retire we visited Port Ludlow. We fell in love with the beauty here on the peninsula. We moved to the Inner Harbor Village in September 2022.

My career was in the legal field for 24 years. I was employed at the St. Tammany Parish Clerk’s Office in Louisiana as a minute clerk. I took minutes for court proceedings (both civil and criminal cases), entered and preserved all evidence, and processed judgements.

One of my goals after retiring was to be a community volunteer. I can offer my time and expertise to the PLVC Board of Directors and look forward to helping with public awareness about PLVC and the community should I be elected.

Candidate: Jason Wright

My name is Jason Wright. I have been married for 30 years, I have two girls, ages 24 and 28. I live in South Bay at 12 Driftwood Ct. I was a director on the Woodcrest Loop HOA board in Silverdale from 2018-2020. I was the Chairman of the Board for the Silverdale Chamber of Commerce in 2020 and a director from 2017 - 2019. I was on the Board of the Silverdale Rotary Club from 2017 to 2020 as the Membership Chair. I was an Associate Director on the Kitsap Builders Association from 2017-2020 and served as the Secretary on the Executive Board for the Kitsap Builders Association from 2019-2020. I was on the Board of the Kathleen Sutton Fund from 2019-2020.

I am also a member of the Port Ludlow Yacht Club, Port Ludlow Fly Fishers Club, and the Cribbage Club. I have lived in Port Ludlow since February 2021. I am currently a Financial Advisor with Edward Jones and am in the process of relocating my practice to Port Ludlow.
