Port of Stockton Welcomes Two New Commissioners

By Karen Robes Meeks

The Stockton Port District Commission has two new members. Earlier this month, William R. Trezza was appointed to his first four-year term and Dr. Elizabeth Blanchard to another two-year term by the San Joaquin County Board of Supervisors.

Trezza was CEO of BAC Community Bank from 1984 to Jan. 1, 2019, when he retired. He still serves as Director of the Bank.

A commissioner since 2008, Blanchard was on the Stockton City Planning Commission for eight years and on the San Joaquin County Planning Commission for two years. She also served as past president of the Association of Pacific Ports.

The seven-member commission is made up of four City of Stockton appointees and three San Joaquin County Board of Supervisors appointees.
