The June issue of Corpus Christi Business News
It’s summer in the Coastal Bend. Mother sea turtles are laying eggs in record numbers and the Shrimporee in Aransas Pass is setting up its tents and gathering ingredients for some of the best seafood eating around. You’ll find out about all that and more in the June issue of Corpus Christi Business News.
On the front page, along with sea turtles and shrimp festival, you’ll read about the resignation of Corpus Christi City Manager Margie Rose and the five elections (two, maybe three, left to go) needed to fill the District 27 congressional seat left vacant by Blake Farenthold when he resigned in April.
