Mayor Bob Foster announced today that he has appointed Lori Ann Farrell to the City’s Harbor Commission.


“I’m pleased to appoint Lori Ann Farrell to the Harbor Commission,” said Mayor Foster. “Lori Ann is the ideal candidate who has demonstrated financial discipline while she served as the City of Long Beach Chief Financial Officer. I’m confident that she will serve the Harbor Commission well during a time when the Harbor Department will be going through several new changes.”


Farrell currently serves as the Director of Finance for the City of Huntington Beach, and served the City of Long Beach for approximately five years, first as the City Controller, and subsequently as the Chief Financial Officer. The Fifth District resident currently sits as the Secretary/Treasurer on the Long Beach Transit Board, and participated in the Leadership Long Beach class of 2000. Farrell is a recipient of many awards recognizing her financial management skills including the Government Finance Officers’ Association Certificate of Excellence in Financial Reporting for the City of Long Beach. She received her Master of Public Administration degree from Columbia University. She has been a resident of Long Beach for 14 years.


Last week’s resignation of Harbor Commission President Nick Sramek opened one of two vacancies on the Harbor Commission. Mayor Foster continues to search for a candidate to fill the vacancy created with the removal of Thomas Fields from the Harbor Commission.


“I want to thank Nick for his many years of service on the Harbor Commission,” said Mayor Foster. “I deeply appreciate the time and contributions he’s given to the City and the residents of Long Beach.”


The Mayor’s recommendations for Charter Commissions require review by the Personnel and Civil Service Committee that will meet on December 3, followed by City Council approval.
