CORPUS CHRISTI - In the race for Mayor of the City of Corpus Christi, At-Large Council Member Nelda Martinez marched to victory with 53% of the vote.
"I think the people want someone who is going to be straight with them. That's going to be accountable with their tax dollars. They want someone who will take care of our streets that have been neglected for so many years. That's gonna make sure when they move forward with their city. They are going to build forward with their strengths. They know this is a city they can all be proud of in Corpus Christi, Texas," said Martinez late last night.
Other results in the race: District Four Council Member Chris Adler ended the evening with 37%, community activist Ray Madrigal received 6%, and local business owner Josey Wales picked up 4%.
Nelda Martinez will replace Joe Adame, who was not seeking re-election.
