Retiring Nueces County Judge Loyd Neal “exemplifies the spirit of a true Texan and statesman” according to a certificate honoring the judge which was presented to him last week.

U.S Sen. John Cornyn gave Neal a flag that has flown over the nation’s capitol during a meeting with city and county officials.

The certificate that came with the flag said it was presented to Neal in recognition of his decades of public and military service.

“His devoted service to Corpus Christi, Nueces County, Texas, and our nation exemplifies the spirit of a true Texan and statesman,” the certificate reads.

Neal served 30 years active duty in the U.S. Army and Army Reserves before retiring as a colonel. He served as Mayor of Corpus Christi before being elected county judge in 2006. And along the way he developed a reputation as a hard-working, honest public servant who cares about the people he serves.

Cornyn was in Corpus Christi last week meeting with local leaders like Neal and Corpus Christi Mayor Joe McComb about issues facing the city and county that involve the federal government.
