I have known Mike Foreman since he was first selected as an astronaut candidate by NASA in 1998. I worked with Mike as an astronaut support engineer until my retirement. I observed Mike’s stellar capabilities as an astronaut during his training and subsequent space flight assignments on space shuttle missions to the International Space Station.
When he was not assigned to or flying on space missions, Mike and I worked together directly supporting other shuttle missions. Mike’s consensus-building approach to leading those support teams were always appreciated and was one of the reasons the entire NASA community held Mike in the highest regard.
Since Mike retired from NASA, we have remained friends and have worked together on some projects to improve the city of Friendswood. I supported his election to the Friendswood City Council where he has served the city with distinction and professionalism. I knew he would do so. I look forward to the next stage of Mike’s service to our city.
I urge everyone to cast their vote for Mike Foreman to be our next Mayor of the city of Friendswood. You will be pleased that you voted for Mike.
