I urge all my friends in Galveston to vote for Diana Bertini for Galveston City Council District 5 on May 10.

No doubt the current City Council, with few exceptions, has not done the job of pulling Galveston out of its current depressed situation with a fired city manager, a no-win crisis in public housing and a delayed and much too slow recovery from Hurricane Ike. I believe Bertini has the knowledge, commitment and ability to help a new City Council overcome these problems.

Most of the news has been on the mayor’s race, and who is mayor will be very important, but you also have to have a competent and dedicated council to make Galveston work. I believe that Bertini has what it takes on a City Council position to move Galveston to where is should be.

I have known Bertini for about 12 years and have worked with her many years on the Prevent Blindness Gulf Coast board of directors.

She did a great job there, and I know she will do an exceptional job on the Galveston City Council. She is a top-notch attorney with years of practice in Galveston and now offices in Texas City.
