U.S. Sen. John Cornyn has high hopes for Galveston County’s plan to improve the treatment of people with mental illness who end up funneled into the county’s justice system.

Hats off to our much valued US Senator John Cornyn! While many federal level politicians (I will not name any names) make a lot of noise trying to direct attention to themselves Senator Cornyn quietly goes about taking care of the People's business. Thank you Senator Cornyn and thank you Leaders of Galveston County in making a step in the right direction in regard to taking a lead in providing help for those with mental issues in Galveston County.
