New Long Beach Commissioners

By Karen Robes Meeks

Lou Anne Bynum and Tracy Egoscue have been elected to serve as president and vice president, respectively, of the Long Beach Board of Harbor Commissioners− the five-member body of mayor-appointed Long Beach residents that governs the Port of Long Beach. Bynum, who was first appointed to the commission in May 2014, is executive vice president of College Advancement and Economic Development for Long Beach City College. Prior to the July announcement, she was the board vice president, and will take over for Lori Ann Guzm├ín, who will now act as board secretary.

“It’s an honor to be chosen as president,” Bynum said. “We have much important work to do on behalf of our customers and city. I look forward to working with my fellow Commissioners, Executive Director Mario Cordero and port staff to continue to build the best and greenest port of the future.”

Egoscue, who was appointed by Mayor Robert Garcia in September 2014, is an environmental attorney based in Long Beach.
