Stieb has served as maritime counsel for the past nine years for the Mass. Port Authority. Stieb was suggested to the Commission by a search committee, formed after former H D C Executive Director Kristen Decas took a job in California last year. The board expects to ratify Stieb’s contract at a meeting on Sept. 11th.
