LEDC President and CEO recognized by Mayor Pete Saenz

Gene Lindgren, LEDC President and CEO, was recently recognized by Mayor Pete Saenz at a city council meeting for his contributions as the Mayor’s appointee on the Port of Entry Advisory (POE) Committee. 

The committee was reactivated in July 2021 after several years of inactivity through the leadership of CM Vanessa Perez.  The POE Advisory Committee participates in helping to shape projects and policies prior to review by city council such as the World Trade Bridge (WTB) Expansion, location of bridge 4/5, projects to mitigate WTB U-turns due to insufficient funds, Vallecillo Road project, and several others with the mission to support safety, throughput, efficiency, and competitiveness for our POE.
