Port board welcomes new GM Rory Respicio

Posted: Updated:

The Port Authority Board met Tuesday and formally approved the appointment of new General Manager Rory Respicio.

The former senator was joined by Dominic Muna who will serve as deputy GM.

Respicio said the board also approved the establishment of in-house legal counsel, adding it provides a good opportunity for "cost containment."

Also, he said the port is paying about $70,000 a month under the current contract with the Office of Attorney Michael Phillips. That contract runs through May.

They hope to hire the in-house counsel by April to handle routine legal matters. But the Board also approved solicitation for maritime legal services which Respicio said is for specialized legal issues.
