Ira Beer also appointed to the commission to fill out remainder of Doug West's term.
NEWPORT BEACH ― Two Newport Harbor Commission seats were filled, with former chair David Girling re-appointed to the dais and Ira Beer filling a recently opened vacancy.
Girling will serve on the commission for another four years, while Beer will complete the remainder of former commissioner Doug West’s term. West resigned from his seat and will be moving to the East Coast.
Beer was one of the applicants previously considered for a commission vacancy in April; Mayor Kevin Muldoon and Council member Scott Peotter voted for Beer back then. He received enough votes during the most recent appointment cycle to be elevated to the Harbor Commission.
Beer will serve out the remainder of West’s term (about one year)
Both appointments were made June 27.
