The Long Beach Board of Harbor Commissioners on Monday, June 22 selected Commissioner Nick Sramek as the next Board President, for a one-year term effective immediately.
The Commission also selected Mario Cordero as Vice President of the five-member Port governing board. Dr. Mike Walter was re-selected as Secretary, and Susan E. Anderson Wise was named Assistant Secretary.
It was the final meeting for Commissioner James C. Hankla, who decided not to seek a second term on the Board after six years of service.
The Board President presides over the Harbor Commission's weekly meetings, makes committee appointments and acts as chief spokesperson for the Port of Long Beach.
Sramek, a Senior Project Leader in system engineering for the Aerospace Corporation, was appointed to the Harbor Commission in 2007. Before joining the Port, Sramek served on the city's Planning Commission for seven years.
