Corpus Christi Mayor Nelda Martinez will be recognized this weekend for her outstanding leadership skills during the U.S. Conference of Mayors annual summer meeting in Dallas. The Latino Leaders Network (LLN) will host the 22nd Tribute to Mayors Sunday, June 22nd at the Omni Dallas Hotel.
 
“When I reflect on receiving the Latino Leadership Award, I must acknowledge the many strong, wise women who modeled leadership for me growing up – from my formidable mother to my dear friend and mentor, the late mayor Mary Rhodes. Additionally, I am pleased that this honor recognizes the many best practice advances Corpus Christi has made in managing growth, maintaining infrastructure, and planning for a future water supply – work that simply couldn’t happen without a dedicated City staff and a cohesive and very capable Council team. I remind myself every day how blessed I am to be the Mayor of the most beautiful city in the Milky Way Galaxy,” said Mayor Martinez.
