I’m surprised that David Hoover is a candidate for anything in Galveston.

Is this the same David Hoover that two years ago received an expensive 90-day contract as the city’s economic development director? Hoover had 90 days to prove his worth to the City Council and city staff. No one offered to hire him on a permanent basis.

Given that city hall was not impressed enough to permanently hire him, why should the voters?

So you are saying that someone that completed a enormous job in 90 days should not run against someone that does not know his backside from a hole in the ground. That does not measure up.

I think Mr Hoover is another case of a candidate simply not being needed at this time. There is NO reason to replace Mr Pappous -- he has done too good a job, and has a solid platform moving forward. He should be running unopposed, as should Terrilyn Tarlton.

Maybe Mr Hoover will be worthy replacement after Norm Pappous serves his 3 terms.
