Not a very informative article...What power does Landry's have?
I agree, poorly written.
Did he have a better idea or just not want the traffic in his neighborhood?

I found it interesting that such a short article was soooo carefully worded. Sad indeed. My bride is working on the island as I type this. We "can" see it from our house. It'll work out despite this silliness. Good always overcomes evil one way or another. H/U

Fertita built the convention center, in return the City of Galveston granted him concessions for his business concerns. There was some kind of trade off, but I cannot remember what was involved.

I am sure there is a very good reason for the decision that is not published. 375 households with an added 4 people on cots moving in with you would also solve the problem. Any offers ?

This could get good. Bobby Moody and Tilman Fertitta fought hammer and tong over who would build and run the new convention center. ( well they didnt fight , their minions and mouth pieces did)

I figure Tilman doesnt want the commoners soiling the new building but dang, they aint gonna hold any conventions there any time soon.
