In Galveston, I got a call from the Republican Party in support of one of the mayoral candidates. I'm sorry to see party politics making its way into local elections.

The studies show that we get a lot more bang-for-the-buck building levees and small scale projects. The gates don't really make financial sense and are a potential environmental and engineering disaster.

We should make best use of our taxpayers money and build smaller projects that …

I don't agree with Abbott on most things - but I do think he's been OK on Covid. At the point, in the summer, when he issued a mask order and closed bars he was at his best. That had maximum effect from minimal restrictions. And he's really never waivered on the mask order. It's not perfe…

I like DST. It's always an adjustment, but it actually makes the best use of the daylight.

If we do away with it -do you want the spring forward or the fall back clock setting? Do you want the clock as it is now? Or do you want to have sunrise at 7:45 instead of 6:45? I'm retired, s…

The city needs to keep track of how much money is spent on those areas where the houses are too close to the beach and the costs of upkeep can be high. With numbers in hand for the cost, it may be possible to make rules that will reduce the costs in the future.

The marshall's parking enforcement has gotten excessive. My neighborhood behind the seawall is signed for "parking with residential permit only". We've never had beach parking issues, and the rule hasn't been enforced ever (10 years?). But on the last 4th of July, the marshall issued tick…

The reason it took so long is that there is no good way to put that much public housing in a place as small as Galveston.

So now the new group at Oleander will NOT be mixed income housing like Cedars and the Villas but will be more like traditional public housing. Its my understandi…

The order should NOT be rescinded. This is about endangering others. Wearing a mask is really an easy way to allow all the other normal liberties without endangering others.

Uneven enforcement is better than no rule at all.

I think that China's idea of a "lockdown" to prevent spread is a LOT different from our idea of "lockdown:".
