I'm proud of the campaigns for the re-election of Mayor Carl Joiner and of Joe Wilson for City Council Position 4.

While our opponents have attacked on all sides with shameful rhetoric, our candidates and campaign workers have stayed on the high road.

Opposition candidate family members stooped to new lows in campaign attacks, particularly on social media.

Our families are grateful to all those who support Carl and Joe, and we have this to say: Honesty and integrity will always win out over lies, innuendo and personal attacks.

We certainly agree that honesty and integrity won this race! It comes as no surprise that we are hearing cries of "victim" from the losing side. I personally have a great deal of respect for Joe Wilson and I hope he continues to be involved in Kemah. ONWARD!

Wow! Apparently you do not know the true Carl & Colene, the 'tatics' I personally witnessed them doing in past elections. What goes around comes around!
