    O'Neill Appoints Former Councilwoman Doris Topsy-Elvord Harbor Commissioner; Council Expected To Vote Feb. 25

    (February 18, 2003) -- Mayor Beverly O'Neill has appointed former 6th district Councilwoman Doris Topsy-Elvord to serve as a Long Beach Harbor Commissioner (the governing body of the Port of Long Beach).

    Under the City Charter, the Mayor's apppointment is subject to an affirmative vote of a majority of the City Council, which is expected to take place on February 25.

    Ms. Topsy-Elvord, who is the first African-American appointed to serve on the LB Harbor Commission, was on the LB City Council from 1992-2000...during which City Hall acquired the shuttered LB Naval Station from the U.S. Navy.

    The Naval Station included the Roosevelt Base, filled with historic buildings designed by famed African-American architect Paul Revere Williams.

    City Hall transfered the property to the Port of LB, which demolished the buildings for use as a container yard (originally planned for the China Ocean Shipping Company).

    The Naval Station's campus-like facility, including the buildings designed by Mr. Williams, qualified for inclusion on the National Register of Historic Places.

    Today, the area is Pier T at the Port of LB.
