Mari Galvan, Port Isabel Event and Cultural Center Director since the center’s inception last year, officially resigned last week citing personal reasons. City Manager Ed Meza spoke about the major role she played in the facility’s maturation since its construction.
“She contributed a lot to the Event Center,” said Meza. “She was there since its construction and she was very valuable in being there when the contractors were working on it. She was there to reach out with here experience working in the county with their annexes so she was valuable for us at the time when she started working because that was our first major construction projects. She made everything easier for us and she did a wonderful job. We’re going to miss her and we’re sad that she has to leave.”
The $3.9 million Center officially opened July 26. As of press time, a replacement has not been appointed and the city is expecting to begin a search for possible coordinators this week by publicizing the open position.
