WENATCHEE — Mike Armstrong has resigned from his post as external affairs director at the Port of Chelan County to become an independent contractor, the port announced in a news release Friday.

Armstrong, a former 12th District state legislator, will be a port employee through year end. Starting next year, he’ll earn $5,000 per month under contract with the port to lobby state agencies in Olympia for funding for port projects and work toward legislation that favors port operations, Mark Urdahl, port director, said Saturday.
