New Port of San Diego Commissioner Sworn In

Port of San Diego’s newest board commissioner representing National City is Sandy Naranjo, who was sworn into office virtually earlier this month.

The political economist and labor and environmental justice advocate joins the seven-member board that governs the Southern California port. She has served in various committees, including the National City Mayor Alejandra Sotelo-Solis to the Sweetwater Authority Citizen Advisory Committee, the AB 617 steering committee to advise the San Diego Air Pollution Control District and the California Energy Commission’s Advisory Committee for the Clean Transportation Program Investment Plan, according to the port.

“Commissioner Naranjo’s background in environmental justice and economics will serve us well as we strive to balance the diversity of interests on our vibrant waterfront,” said Chairman-Elect Michael Zucchet, “She brings a bold and progressive perspective that will benefit our communities.”
