Port of Stockton commissioner vacancies attract 11 candidates
A group of 11 Stockton citizens are vying for the two open positions on the Port of Stockton Commission. The Port is an economic hub of the Stockton region, conducting $2 billion in business and generating more than $25 million in taxes for the city and county over the last five years, according to the port. Commission Board members approve and set port policy.
The Port Commission is made up of seven members, of whom the city appoints four, with three assigned by the San Joaquin County Board of Supervisors.
The positions are unpaid, although commissioners enjoy international travel to attend conferences and meetings or to participate in overseas trade missions.
Former commissioners Ron Coale and Stephen Griffen are seeking another four-year term. The City Council will vote on Tuesday.
