I want to thank the residents of Galveston for the opportunity to serve as your mayor. Above all else, I want you to know it has been an honor and a privilege.
Serving as mayor has renewed my faith in the future of Galveston, mostly because of your spirit and generosity. We have been blessed with good people serving on the many boards, commissions and committees within city government. We have dedicated employees who work hard to make our island run. And we have a remarkable wealth of businesses and institutions committed to the community.
