New Port of San Diego District Clerk

By Karen Robes Meeks

Donna Morales is the Port of San Diego’s new District Clerk, taking over for retiring Tim Deuel.

In her new position, Morales will be tasked with maintaining the Port District Code and ensuring compliance with the Public Records Act, the Brown Act, the Political Reform Act, the Port’s Ethics Policy and Robert’s Rules of Order. She will also helm the Office of the District Clerk, which coordinates the dockets for the port commissioners and board committees meetings, and oversees the port’s records management programs and responses to Public Records Act requests.

Morales has been with the port since 2002, first in the Audit, Risk Management and Safety Department before being promoted to Manager of Commissioner and Executive Services, which manages the administrative staff that supports the port commissioners.

“Donna Morales has proven to be a true public servant during her career at the Port of San Diego,” said Randa Coniglio, port president and CEO. “I have every confidence that the strong leadership skills she has demonstrated during her 16 years here will assist the port with its commitment to being an open and transparent government agency.”
