LA Harbor Commission Confirms President

By Karen Robes Meeks

On Thursday, Los Angeles City Council confirmed Mayor Eric Garcetti’s appointment of Jaime L. Lee as president of the Los Angeles Harbor Commission, the organization that governs the Port of Los Angeles.

Lee will take over for Vilma Martinez, who served for five years before leaving the board earlier this month. “I’m humbled to join my fellow harbor commissioners and serve as president of this important commission,” said Lee, a native Angeleno. “I look forward to working with all port stakeholders and staff as I continue the efforts of my predecessor to further enhance North America’s premier trade gateway.”

For the last four years, Lee was on the Los Angeles City Employees’ Retirement System Board of Administration as a commissioner and president.
