viagra order arial, sans-serif;”>CandidatesCornerPort Hueneme – Will Berg, Director of Marketing & Public Information for the Oxnard Harbor District has announced his candidacy for the Port Hueneme City Council.
A 17-year resident of the city of Port Hueneme, Berg was named the city’s ‘Citizen of the Year’ in 2014. “My career with a public agency has allowed me to successfully interact with elected leaders at local, county, state and federal levels on issues vital to our city. I will dedicate myself to bridging the social and economic gaps between the various local BergWillPhotojurisdictions that have kept us from moving forward,” said Berg.

A third generation Oxnard native, Berg attended Moorpark College and California State University at Chico before studying at the National Political Science University in Taipei Taiwan. He completed an M.A. degree in Comparative and International Politics at the Monterey Institute of International Studies Monterey California and served two years in South Korea with the United States Peace Corps.

In 1978, capitalizing on his excellent Mandarin, Will began escorting various North American groups visiting China, making him among some of the earliest North Americans to step behind the Bamboo Curtain. Will has lectured aboard cruise ships calling on Asian destinations along the Pacific Rim and spent 15 years as a shore excursion specialist with some of the world’s most prestigious cruise lines.

Today Will promotes the Port of Hueneme as Director of Marketing & Public Information to, among others, the fresh produce and auto carrier industries and manages the Port’s grantee status of Foreign Trade Zone #205.
“My Master’s Degree in International Politics and business background has uniquely prepared me to serve as a councilman. As a board member of the Ventura County Workforce Development Board and Port Hueneme Chamber of Commerce, I have worked to bring career and job opportunities to our city as well as educational programs for our youth. I will work to promote cooperation and communication with all our community, civic leaders and partners,” Berg said.

“As a long-time resident and active member in our community, I’m excited about the opportunity to work with others to help guide the city of Port Hueneme into stronger economic growth,” Berg said. “I care about our community and want to leverage the resources of the Port and the Naval Base that will generate a stronger economic impact for the City.”

In addition to his Board positions with the County’s Workforce Development Board and the Hueneme Chamber, Will also sits on the District Export Council of Southern California’s Leadership Task Force, the Executive Board of the Port Hueneme/South Oxnard Neighborhood for Learning, the California State University Channel Islands Business Advisory Council, and he is an Executive Board Member of the Santa-to-the-Sea Half Marathon. Berg also serves on the Ventura College Business Division Advisory Board and the Land Use, Business Development and Military Appreciation Committees of the Oxnard Chamber of Commerce.

A fundraiser is planned for Saturday August 13 from 3:00 – 6:00 PM. Those interested in attending or wishing more information please call (805) 985-8020. Refreshments will be served.
