Respicio. “Thanks to the hardworking employees of the Port, we have raised the bar and set higher standards because we’ve proven that we can do it. We are going make sure that our community continues to see the Port through the eyes of our Port co-workers so everyone can recognize all the hard work and sacrifices made to keep the Port Authority 100% operational.”
