Peters and Black Get Port District Seats

The San Diego City Council, meeting Nov. 10, appointed outgoing Councilman Scott Peters to fill one of two seats on the Board of Port Commissioners whose terms expire in January.

Along with Peters, who is the council’s president, the city council reappointed Laurie Black to a seat she currently holds on the San Diego Unified Port District board. The council voted to fill the positions on the port board despite it having the option to wait until a new council takes over in December with four new council members.

The council rejected the nomination of Robert McNeely, who now holds a seat on the Centre City Development Corp. board, for the port seat now held by Sylvia Rios.

The port commission oversees development along San Diego Bay and has seven commissioners: three from San Diego and one each from the cities of Chula Vista, Coronado, National City and Imperial Beach.

Peters, an attorney who represents District 1, was first elected to the City Council in 2000 and was unable to run for a third term.

Black, a political consultant, was filling in the port commission term formerly held by attorney Victor Villaplana.
