    Since I can't vote for Mr Pappous, I can only urge those in District 4 to do it!

    My personal favorite plank in his platform is his desire to revitalize/expand the Port.

    Galveston has three things that very few cities have: 30 miles of beach, a deepwater port, and proximity to a mega-population-center.

    Everyone talks about the beach and bringing in tourists. Someone need to give some props to the Port, and that's what Norm is doing.

    If I could vote in Island elections Pappous would get mine.
    Galveston HAD some advantages over other parts of the county. Not least of them was being the county seat.
    For decades Island based county government spent an unfair share of county revenues on the Island which works now against the island in present day county politics.
    Called PAY BACK. Or what goes around, comes around. Galveston deserves the liberal rot it still encourages.
    JY will expand the liberal rot almost as fast as he expands his personal wealth.

    I live in district 4 and we still have pot holes rub board roads and no drainage. Norm will not get my vote and I hope there are others that feel the same way.

    I'm glad you've moved from the neighborhood.

    LOL! Every Galveston neighborhood has potholes.

    If that's how you choose to slam Mr Pappous, I'd call it praising with faint damnation...
