Ian Monroe announced his intentions to run for the Laguna Vista City Council, place 6. Yes, you guessed right, Ian is Alta’s son. We are very proud of Ian for his accomplishments and totally endorse his decision.
Ian grew up in Port Isabel. He attended schools in Port Isabel, graduated from the South Texas High School for Medical Professions in Mercedes and went on to graduate from Texas A & M University in College Station in 2003.
In college, Ian met his wife, a fellow Aggie, Dr. Julie Monroe, who is now the local veterinarian of the Port Isabel Animal Clinic. They have started a family and have two beautiful daughters. Having a family in the community makes him particularly concerned with local issues affecting children.
Ian says “I strive to keep an open mind grounded in truth. If elected, you can be assured that all my opinions on city matters will be prayerfully considered and made with honesty and integrity.” We feel Ian will be a great asset for Laguna Vista.
Ian is currently a loan officer for the First National Bank of South Padre Island. He serves on the Community Development Corporation which is currently implementing the Parks project in Laguna Vista.
Undoubtedly, there will be a great future for Ian. It appears this young man is just getting started in a long life of serving his community. Please turn out to vote!
