By Karen Robes Meeks

For the second time, Mary Anne Rooney will lead the Port of Hueneme Board of Harbor Commissioners as president.

Rooney, who was first elected in 2010, became the port’s first woman to serve as president of the Board in 2014.

“I am honored to be the president of the board and am focused on strengthening our relationships with our neighboring cities, the Navy, and the county for the benefit of all,” she said. “Also, I am looking toward continuing to increase economic vitality for our region, with a focus on increasing exports.”

Rooney, an independent strategic business consultant, has been involved in the leadership roles with the Association of Pacific Ports; the American Association of Port Authorities; and the World Affairs Council, California Central Coast Chapter.
