Lorianna Kastrop has been elected as Chair of the Redwood City Port Commission, the first woman to hold the position in the Port's 76-year history.

In June 2008, Kastrop was the second woman in history appointed to the Port Commission. The first was Marguerite Leipzig, in the early 1980s, after having served on the Redwood City Council, including two years as mayor. Kastrop was reappointed to the Port Commission in 2012.

Kastrop is vice president and controller of The Kastrop Group, Inc. architectural firm, of which her husband, Michael, is principal architect. She has long been active in Redwood City. She was a member of the Redwood City Elementary School Board from 1997-2001, during which she received a Master of Boardsmanship award from the California School Boards Association.

She is a founding member and past president of the Redwood City Mothers Club. She is a past president of the Peninsula Sunrise Rotary Club. She has been active in the Redwood City-San Mateo County Chamber of Commerce for many years, and in 2001 was named that organization's Athena Businesswoman of the Year. She is a board member of Stanford Professional Women; she earned a B.A. in International Relations from Stanford University in 1982.

Lorianna has a strong connection to San Francisco Bay. She is a recreational boater and yacht racer who has crewed in hundreds of races on the Bay. She and her husband race their Catalina 30 sailboat named "Goose."  She is also a staff commodore of the South Beach Yacht Club, located adjacent to AT&T Baseball Park in San Francisco.

Kastrop succeeds as chair Dick Dodge. Commissioner Tom Cronin was elected vice-chair and Commissioner Ralph Garcia secretary.
