Houston Port Commission Reappoints Chairman

Janiece M. Longoria was unanimously reappointed Chairman of the Port Commission of the Port of Houston Authority two days ago in a joint session of the Harris County Commissioners Court and the Houston City Council.

During the meeting, which was held at the Port of Houston Authority’s Executive Office Building Boardroom, both Houston Mayor Annise D. Parker and County Judge Ed Emmett lauded the Port Authority’s performance under Chairman Longoria’s leadership.

I want to salute all of your board members and you for the great results that the port has achieved over the past two years,” Parker said.

Mayor Parker highlighted the recent centennial celebration for the Houston Ship Channel, as well as the importance of the port and the need to continue to seek support for infrastructure improvements around the port.

Emmett, who is a recognized transportation expert, said the ship channel and port are vital to the region and he indicated strong leadership is crucial.

Clearly the Port of Houston is one of the great ports in the world and has great leadership,” Emmett said. “So a lot of that is attributed to you (Longoria).”

Chairman Longoria noted the Port Authority achieved record results in years 2013 and 2014 and is poised as well for a solid 2015. She noted the ongoing importance of partnership with the city and county as well as other stakeholders.
