The Mayor’s State of the Island Address this year was unique considering the fact that after 22 years, South Padre Island Mayor Robert Pinkerton Jr. is stepping down from public office. Although it was difficult to condense 22 years into 15 minutes, Pinkerton shared an emotional reflection on his past years in service.

Pinkerton was elected as alderman in 1982 and in 1986, was elected mayor, serving two three-year terms. After stepping down from public office, he was reelected mayor in 2002 and has held the position ever since.
