The Port of San Diego welcomes Danielle Moore as the newest commissioner to represent the City of San Diego. On March 16, 2022, Commissioner Moore was sworn in by Port District Clerk Donna Morales, who administered the oath of office.

“Danielle’s knowledge and expertise in renewable energy, infrastructure, and finance will greatly benefit the Port as we move forward with our Maritime Clean Air Strategy initiatives and critical infrastructure projects,” said Chairman Dan Malcolm, Port of San Diego Board of Port Commissioners. “On behalf of the Board of Port Commissioners, I welcome Commissioner Danielle Moore and look forward to her collaboration with the Board, Port staff, our tenants, and our neighboring communities.”

The Port is governed by a seven-member board, of which three members are appointed by the City of San Diego and one each is appointed by the Cities of Chula Vista, Coronado, Imperial Beach and National City.

“As the Port seeks greener and cleaner energy sources through large state and federal infrastructure investments,” said Vice Chairman Rafael Castellanos. “Danielle’s renewable energy expertise will help the Port achieve greater investments in solar energy, advancements in shore power, and expanded installation of electric vehicle charging stations and microgrids.”

A native San Diegan, Commissioner Moore has over a decade of experience as an attorney and her current practice focuses on the renewable energy industry. Commissioner Moore currently serves on the board of The New Children’s Museum. She is also a member of the Earl B.
