FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: (2/9/2017 – Corpus Christi, TX)
The following is a letter from former Councilman Chad Magill:
Leadership comes in many forms; Autocratic, Democratic, Strategic, Transformational, Team, Cross-Cultural, Facilitative, Laissez-Faire, Transactional, Coaching, Charismatic, and Visionary Leadership.
Some forms of leadership are most evident when times are tough and challenges seem to arise around every corner. Some forms of leadership offer a steady and even-handed approach, even in our most most difficult days. And, some forms of leadership plant seeds for the Greater Good to take root, growing steadily over time.
Today I share this with you after prayerful reflection, with a clear conscience, open heart, and belief in our city’s future that I am choosing to not run for Mayor of Corpus Christi in this Special Election.
It Is Our Time as a City, to Rise Above
To each of you who have supported our campaign, offered to work on our campaign, and pledged your vote:
