Tarleton's campaign website listed the following accomplishments from her current position:
- Creating Jobs and Rebuilding Our Economy
- Excerpt: "Gael, in conjunction with her colleagues at the Port, has taken steps in the last few years to create jobs and rebuild our economy. These reforms have led to the creation of more than 4,500 jobs since the Great Recession started, with another estimated 1,200 to 1,500 new jobs in 2011."
- Safeguarding Our Environment
- Excerpt: "One of the reasons Gael ran for the Commission was that she saw the potential of the Port to act as a leader in adopting strong environmental standards for the air, water and land, consistent with the values of the people of King County."
- Protecting Our Ports and Our Citizens
- Excerpt: "With nearly 30 years as a security and intelligence expert, Gael was a natural choice to lead efforts that protected our Port and King County citizens. Prior to her election, the Port did not have a long term plan to deal with manmade or natural disasters. Gael’s experience protecting our nation’s ports from nuclear, biochemical and natural disasters helped move the Port in a new direction as it dealt with its own long term goals. Now, the Port is a regional partner leading the way in protecting our airport and our seaport while also combating national issues like human trafficking."
- Reforming the Port and Restoring Common Sense
- Excerpt: "Within her first month in office, Gael wrote the “Transparency Code of Conduct” motion to move the Port away from its history with closed-door meetings and inaccessibility to the public. ...Under Gael’s leadership, the Port staff adopted new policies for small-works contracting and consulting projects, and implemented new community outreach with women- and minority-owned businesses to help more companies qualify for Port contracts and procurement projects."
