Guam - The Port Authority of Guam board of directors will soon have a new chairman as newly confirmed member Francisco Santos was selected to serve as the incoming chairman once current chairman Dan Tydingco's term expires. Tydingco's term expired on June 30 but provides for a 90-day turnover plus three legislative sessions which should be met soon.

He said, "It is a great honor to continue to lead the leadership of this board, to move the port forward and let us work together as one team that is the purpose of the governor appointing us here is to work together to move this port forward and support the management in also running the Port."

Santos has years of experience with the Port and previously served as chairman of the Guam International Airport Authority board of directors. The Port board meanwhile may soon be welcoming another new member as the governor had appointed Dickerson and Quinn vice president and general manager Timothy Kernaghan to serve a three-year term. His confirmation hearing is set for next week.
