CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -

Josh Tijerina plans to formally announce Monday his intention to run for the City Council District 2 seat currently held by Chad Magill.

Tijerina, an insurance agent and leader of Young Business Professionals of the Coastal Bend, said residents of District 2 have a lot of concerns. He said the City is on the edge of a major economic development boom, and he wants to make sure that growth is sustainable for the short- and long-term.

"All the way from streets and street lights to seeing redevelopment in a shopping center such as Bel Air, Parkdale Plaza and those areas," Tijerina said. "They want to see redevelopment."

Magill reportedly plans to officially announce his intention to run for a City Council At-Large seat next week as well.

Tijerina will hold a gathering at 5:30 p.m. Monday at Luciano's Restaurant in Six Points to make his formal announcement.
