Steve Bearden, a La Feria resident, has taken the helm as director of the Port Isabel/San Benito Navigation District.
“My first day was Monday,” he said in a Tuesday interview. “I am new at this job, but I have been learning a lot already from Bob.”
Bearden was referring to Bob Cornelison, the previous port director who after 34 years on the job is moving to Missouri where he lived previously for a number of years.
Cornelison, known for his “your friendly port director,” greetings, will be here assisting Bearden on and off until the end of February.
“I am very happy to be here,” Bearden said. “I look forward to carry the same progress as Bob has done over a number of years.”
