Communication – As your Mayor, I will continue to serve Galveston by building relationships and improving communication with all entities that shape the economic forces on the island, as well as our residents. Decisions made by the City, Port and Park Board cannot be made in a vacuum. Having served on all three, I will establish the communication that is needed to allow these decision-makers to make decisions in consultation with each other, which will make the process more transparent, more productive, and more efficient. Recently I supported taking this idea one step further in establishing a combined Contract Monitoring System for these entities that unifies procedures and policies.

With better communication, we will develop a strategy to support and benefit not just our economy but our entire community. When that happens, we all win.
