Three members of the Port of Redwood City’s Board of Port Commissioners have recently been elected to new leadership roles within the commission, it was announced Sept. 20.

Ralph Garcia, who has been part of the commission for 17 years, has been chosen as the new chair of the commission that governs the Northern California seaport. Prior to joining the commission in 2005, Garcia spent 10 years on the Redwood City Planning Commission.

Lorianna Kastrop, who joined the commission in 2008, will serve as the board’s vice chairperson. Stan Maupin, who was appointed to the commission in June, will serve as board secretary. A U.S. Marine Corps veteran, he has over 32 years of fire protection service in Foster City and Redwood City.

They will serve with fellow commissioners Richard Claire and Nancy C. Radcliffe.

“I am honored to lead the commission alongside Commissioners Kastrop and Maupin,” Garcia said. “The Board of Port Commissioners looks forward to supporting maritime operations, regional resiliency and continuing to create recreation opportunities for the public to enjoy our beautiful waterfront.”
