LOS ANGELES, CA — The Los Angeles Area Chamber of Commerce applauds the appointment of Cindy Miscikowski to the Los Angeles Board of Harbor Commissioners, which oversees the management and operation of the Port of Los Angeles.

“Cindy Miscikowski is the right choice to serve on the Harbor Commission, particularly during this difficult time in our economy,” said Gary Toebben, President & CEO, Los Angeles Area Chamber of Commerce.  “Ms. Miscikowski's understanding of regional business issues, combined with her experience as a city councilmember, makes her an ideal selection for this post.  The L.A. Area Chamber looks forward to working with her as we work to advance green growth at the port.”

The L.A. Area Chamber is a champion of green growth and its efforts help keep the Port of Los Angeles competitive in today's global economy.  The Chamber has long advocated for federal and state funding to bolster the Ports of L.A. and Long Beach — which together receive more than 43 percent of all goods entering the United States.

The Chamber has also been a lead supporter in successful green growth projects including the TraPac project at the Port of L.A. and the Middle Harbor project at the Port of Long Beach.  More information on the L.A. Area Chamber and its Ports & Goods Movement policy agenda is available at www.lachamber.com.
