From the latest campaign filings:

The receipts are in from city council Position 8 candidate Jordan Royer's June 23 fundraiser—it was held on a yacht owned by cargo terminal management company SSA Marine (I wrote about here).

From the looks of the disclosure reports, Royer's guest list included a number of high-powered lobbyists for the shipping industry, which Royer currently represents.

On the boat with Royer:

• William Patrick Jones of the Washington Public Ports Association, a port lobby group ($100)

• Randy Roy of the Aequus Corporation, which lobbies on behalf of shipping companies including Royer's employer, the Pacific Merchants Shipping Association;

• Rich Berkowitz, a onetime Port of Seattle candidate who runs the Transportation Institute, a shipping industry lobby group ($100)

• Representatives from the Alaska Crab Coalition, which lobbies on behalf of the crabbing industry ($150)
