The Senate approved this morning the governor’s nomination of Christopher King as Director of Port Administration. The vote was 16-2.
King has been deputy director of Port Administration since 2005.
Before joining port he was a special assistant to the CEO of the American Samoa Power Authority for 5 years.
Before that he was a flight operations supervisor for United Parcel Service at Ontario International Airport for many years.
A graduate of Marist Brothers High School, he holds a Bachelor of Science in Business and Management from the University of Redlands, California and a Master in Education from San Diego State University.
King still has to be approved by the House of Representatives before he’s cleared to serve on the Lemanu and Talauega cabinet.
