"He’s got my vote. He’s always been responsive and listens to his constituents. Craig will make an excellent mayor and continue Galveston’s successful path forward."
When two dilapidated crack houses near my home continued to be a problem, one call to Craig Brown and the whole situation was fixed. He had crews over there immediately, and within several months the houses were sold and added to the tax rolls after they were remodeled. He knows how to get things done.
Craig Brown has been my City Councilman since we bought our house in 2011. He brainstormed with my son regarding his Eagle scout project, he showed up at the beach on a Saturday morning to help our Adopt-a-Beach group pick up garbage, and he has responded to me whenever I had a concern whether or not he could solve my issue. I don’t know of a person with more integrity to serve as our city’s Mayor.
My wife Sharon and I have lived in Galveston’s District 2 since 2008. We have been so very lucky to have Craig Brown as our Councilman for the past 5+ years. Dr. Brown has helped our District and the City bring about significant changes that have improved the quality of life here in Galveston while guiding our City through a period of Post Ike/Harvey growth. His participation on the Park Board helped strike a balance between our growing tourism-based economy and the needs and desires of local residents. He has worked tirelessly on issues of local concern, including parking, code enforcement, drainage, infrastructure, and the environment – all with a focus on what’s best for those of us that call Galveston home. Dr. Brown’s monthly newsletter has been a regular source of information regarding important issues in the community. His rapid response to email inquiries is unprecedented, and he is always willing to listen to comments and concerns. He has been a regular participant in our Neighborhood Association, bringing timely information and insight to our meetings. His participation in City-wide meetings, events, and activities is equally impressive. Above all, Dr. Brown is guided by his ethical standards, civility, common sense, and good nature. These are the characteristics of not only a good Councilman but a good person as well. That is what has made Craig Brown such a valuable asset to our community. We STRONGLY support Craig’s candidacy for Mayor and encourage the same. Galveston is rapidly moving forward, and we need a steady hand, with vast experience, to lead our community into this new decade. Most of all, we need a person that can balance the interests of Galveston residents with future economic development to maintain and improve our quality of life.
We were tenants of Craig and Angela Brown for many years, when they owned the Pix building. You can tell a lot about someone by how they act as a landlord, and I deeply respect and admire how the Browns have conducted themselves both personally and professionally. They have dedicated their recent lives to bettering Galveston. I’ve thought for years that I wished Craig would run for mayor as I watched him as a City Council member. He continually displays his integrity as a public servant, and I will be proud to cast a vote for him!
"I’d always believed government was something far removed from me. As a citizen, I didn’t feel I had a real voice in the policies that direct the paths our community takes. All of that changed when I got to know Craig Brown. When I had problems concerning our city, I turned to him as my councilman. He always listened, and even more importantly, he always took action to remedy the issues whenever it was in his power to do so. I soon realized there were countless others in his district and in our city that were benefiting from the same attention he’d given me. I’ve never met anyone else who works so tirelessly and selflessly as Craig does for the betterment of Galveston, and he does it without blowing his own horn. He’s earned his knowledge of how this city operates through years of working with different organizations and city council, yet he never thinks he has all the answers. And that’s what I like about him. He maintains his beginner’s mind, always open to new information and innovative ways of thinking. In other words, he’s the best of the old and the new. A fusion of information we’ve gained from the past with the flexibility and imagination to see a future for Galveston that’s even better. I hope my fellow citizens also believe they, too, can make a positive difference to our local governing bodies. I hope they’ll learn about the candidates, their policies, and what they’ve already done to better Galveston. I hope they’ll vote because in a mayoral campaign, every single vote counts. Most of all, I hope they’ll see Craig Brown is the kind of man who leads with care and diligence."
I try to stay neutral and keep my opinions to myself when it comes to politics, but this is one person with a passion for Galveston and its people that I want you all to know about. Craig Brown For Mayor is someone in our community that has given back countless and selfless hours, owned a business, and lived in our community for years. In my 6 years serving for the Commission on the Arts of Galveston, Craig Brown has been a huge supporter of the arts as a city council representative. He sees the impact and bond the arts make to a community like ours. He understands our city and listens to its needs from the people. Being the Mayor of a city as unique as ours is not an easy job, but one that I believe this human can do with vitality!
"Just want to say thank you Craig for the wonderful job you do for no salary at all."
"Craig Brown is the voice of reason."
