The choice on May 10 is ours, people of Galveston. Either we keep it, or we lose it.

Please cast your vote for Elizabeth Beeton, one strong lady on our side, for mayor, and then vote to keep Norman Pappous for city councilman.

Pappous is just as strong as Beeton, and he will keep the city of Galveston ours, as well.

The choice is ours, people. So get out and vote. One lost vote could be the one we need. Let’s choose to keep it ours and not put it in the hands of big businesses.

Keep it ours?..Dumpy little town you have there buddy..Abandoned lots..potholes, city government inept..
No one's coming anymore except to get on a ship and leave..Jim Yarbrough for mayor of Galveston.

Either choice is a mistake for Galveston. Both are a disaster.

Evelyn Clark

I agree they both are wrong for this city. [sad]

Ah, yes, the anonymous Kool-Aid drinkers appear!
Goose-stepping precisely in the pattern that the Kempners want them to!
