Thank you, O’Laochdha. When I was a teacher and school administrator, I believed in leading by example. I continue to do that everyday of my life. Civility is very underrated these days. I appreciate your kind words.

Thank you to the voters of Galveston Island & Bolivar Peninsula for believing in my message and me.

Thank you, Mr. Ken Jencks for your service, as a GISD Trustee. You were truly a gentleman during the duration of our, mutual, campaign. The citizens of District 7-G are grateful t…

Mr. Schlessinger,
Do you know Lisa Blair?
Have you done due diligence to back up your accusation that Mrs. Blair is the owner of that beach property that has been at the center of much controversy? I think not. Lying about a persons character on the GDN forum may be considered slanderous.

I would bet money that if your house was crumblin…

Mindy Lakin commented on Why 'no' is the only way to vote May 6

Galveston is my home, by choice.

Mindy Lakin commented on Don't be fooled on May 6

I know that your rhetoric is indicative of the smoke, mirrors & innuendo of the times.
Old cities & old homes require lots of non-discretionary funds to maintain them. We live in a city that has both.
One doesn't need to be an engineer or a genius to understand that 100+ ye…
