    Even if wealthy Galveston families help build the pool, we don't have the funds to maintain it. I drive down streets in deplorable shape. Until we can afford to fix the basic infrastructure we have, Galvestonians can't afford a luxury swimming pool. This is no different than any family wish. Everyone would like a pool in their back yard, but not many have the money to build or maintain one. Fix our streets and sewers first, then we can discuss luxury items that wealthy folks can afford.

    We have a huge ocean to swim in not to mention a great pool at Central that can be used. Seems like a waste of money for something we do not need.
