(AUSTIN) – On the final day of the Texas Municipal League’s 101st Annual Conference in Austin, Corpus Christi Mayor Nelda Martinez was selected as President-elect of the Texas Municipal League (TML) for the 2013-2014 term. Martinez is in her first term as Mayor of the Gulf Coast town of Corpus Christi with a population of more than 300,000, after serving six years on the City Council. Long-active in the TML as a Board and committee member, Martinez was selected from among five candidates who interviewed earlier in the week for the position. Mayor Martinez begins her term as President-elect today (October 11, 2013) and is expected to ascend to President of TML in October 2014, succeeding Fort Worth City Council member Jungus Jordan, just months before the 84th Regular Session of the Texas Legislature convenes.
