A political ad by Galveston mayoral candidate Don Mafrige addressing the public housing issue has upset some voters. 


Don Mafrige, you have driven the nail in your coffin with the full-page ad that appeared in Sunday’s edition of The Daily News. It represented the ultimate insult to many voting Galvestonions who want to see the city dig itself out of the many problems, which were created by your kind of negative thinking.

If this was not a paid ad, it would never have made it to the cutting floor. Thanks for helping me and many other god-fearing citizens make an intelligent decision as we vote for the new mayor of Galveston.

Nate, I guess the ad was not in the E-edition. I went back to look at it, having missed it on Sunday.

Anyone know where I can find it?

Thanks, confusedemmy.

I guess I don't see what's so offensive. It's definitely an attack ad, but there's nothing unusual about that.

I agree with Mr Mafrige about the PH issue. Jim Yarbrough is understating its potential impact, while probably promising to support it. 529 units wouldn't kill Galveston, but they could sure cripple it.
