New Long Beach Commission President

By Karen Robes Meeks

Attorney Tracy Egoscue is the new president of the Long Beach Board of Harbor Commissioners, the five-member board that governs the Port of Long Beach.

“I am honored to be afforded this opportunity by my fellow Commissioners,” Egoscue said. “I look forward to working with each individually as well as collectively as we pursue what is best for the Port and the City of Long Beach.”

Egoscue, who owns Long Beach environmental law firm the Egoscue Law Group Inc., previously served as a California Deputy Attorney General. Mayor Robert Garcia appointed her to the board in 2014; last year, she served as board vice president.

The commission also selected former state lawmaker Bonnie Lowenthal as board vice president and real estate business owner Frank Colonna as board secretary. Both are former Long Beach City Council members.
