I would like to know the Mayorial candidates views on this lawsuit.

Mike Leahy

Carla Cotropia again...Is she still the lawyer for the Parks Board too, or has she slipped from one fissure to another in the cracked façade of our City's semi-officialdom?

Have seen her in action in court. Made me rush home, launder clothing, and shower in very hot water.

Raymond Lewis

Jarvo it really doesn't matter what the mayoral candidates think at this point. One of the candidates would have preferred the city not put up a defense at all. The GOGP attorney seems to be throwing anything at the wall just to see if something sticks.

From the looks of how they have gathered plaintiffs, they could well have gathered Australian Aborigines and claim they will be harmed IF they decide to think about a move to Galveston, they then would be forced to live in public housing on a barrier reef that is unsafe for any human being. No lawyer but their pleading reads amateurish at best.

Save the Island. Don't build them back!

Once you get into bed with the federal government no body part is safe from...whatever...

Supporters of this project don't care if the Island isn't a good place for indigent people to live. They don't care if building housing for indigent residents is bad for the Island.
They are being well paid and the more delays the longer they get paid.
HUD buys Democrat voters and has a big budget for that purpose.

Another case of our government using tax money against taxpayers.
Helping non taxpayers because they'll help Democrats elect politicians who will use taxes against taxpayers.
