When I attended the Galveston City Council meeting last week, I was impressed with interim City Manager Brian Maxwell’s professional demeanor. In fact, everyone on the council was extremely positive and friendly.
Reading in Sunday’s Daily News about Brian’s vision for recreating Kermit Courville Stadium and its surrounding area was another wonderful surprise (“Can you picture a stadium corridor,” March 30).
I am an avid believer in preserving resources and avoiding waste, and the editorial certainly sounded sensitive to those points.
That said, I am admittedly new to this topic and I do not intend to offend anyone who might have strong feelings to the opposite. What a nice thing it would be for the island to work together to make this come true.
I can imagine the excellent lessons our children would learn from observing their adult role models collaborating, deliberating without animosity and achieving a goal that could serve our community for decades and generations to come.
I understand that this would require compromise from everyone involved, but the results of that effort could be invaluable. What a legacy for the future.
