Brookshire Economic Development Corp. invited surrounding EDCs, elected officials, and local business owners to attend its 12th annual Business Retention and Expansion Program.
Brookshire EDC coordinator Mike Barnes welcomed everyone and introduced special speaker Art Pertile.
Pertile is with the law firm Olison & Olison which serves as the city of Brookshire and the Brookshire EDC attorney. He has represented governmental entities and public officials exclusively for more than 31 years.
Pertile was honored last year at McMurry’s Night of Distinction as their Distinguished Alumnus for 2018.
This year’s event was once again held at Hemi Hideout where everyone was greeted by owner John Hovas.
The BEDC board members and Brookshire City Council would like to thank the 100-plus guests who attended this event.
