The people of Galveston are tough! We get hit by Hurricane Ike. It really knocked us down, but only for a second! We got up. Dusted ourselves off. And got to work. This whole past year has been a pretty big challenge, but we are moving ahead. We had to fight the University of Texas Regents to keep UTMB, our largest employer in the county open. The regents were ready to let us go down the drain.
More after the jump!
We pushed back hard!
And we were also luck with out State Representative Craig Eiland.
Mark my words. When Texas Democrats regain control of the House of Representatives, he will be our next speaker.
We are now fighting to keep our Federal Court in the county.
Keep Our Court
Now losing the Federal Court doesn impact just Galveston County. It impacts Matagorda, Chambers, and Brazoria counties. They are all coastal counties. We have been fighting this for almost a year. And Galveston may get it’s court back,
How can you help? We are in the middle of a petition drive to keep the court in Galveston County. We have been going out to people in the community. Also, I have set up an online petition. Please go and sign it.
Thanks for your help!
