Celina Zacarias, senior director of Community and Government Relations for California State University, Channel Islands and chair of the Oxnard Chamber of Commerce, is the Oxnard Harbor District Board of Commissioners’ newest member. The board appointed Zacarias earlier this month to fill the position left vacant by the late Dr. Manuel Lopez.
“I would like to thank the Oxnard Harbor Board of Commissioners for appointing me to the recent vacancy left by the passing of the Honorable Dr. Manuel Lopez,” she said. “It is an honor to be selected to serve with such a hardworking and distinguished Board of Commissioners. I have always respected the Harbor District for the vital role they play in our local economy, and I consider it a privilege to serve and work alongside them. Finally, I hope to serve the remaining term with the same honor and dignity as Dr. Lopez.”
Zacarias will serve a 10-month term expiring on Jan. 4, 2021.
