Galveston County, Texas Information
Galveston, Texas lies on the coast by Galveston Island and Pelican Island. The population as of 2015 was estimated to have been 50,180, and it is the county seat and second largest municipality of the county. Named after Bernardo de Gálvez y Madrid, Count of Gálvez (born in Macharaviaya, Málaga, Spain), Galveston’s first European settlements on the island were built around 1816 by French pirate Louis-Michel Aury to help the fledgling Republic of Mexico fight Spain. The Port of Galveston was established in 1825 by the Congress of Mexico following its independence from Spain. The city was the main port for the Texas Navy during the Texas Revolution, and later served as the capital of the Republic of Texas.
During the 19th century, Galveston became a major U.S. commercial center and one of the largest ports in the United States. It was for a time Texas’ largest city, known as the “Queen City of the Gulf”. It was devastated by the 1900 Galveston Hurricane, whose effects included flooding and a storm surge. The natural disaster on the exposed barrier island is still ranked as the deadliest in United States history, with an estimated death toll of 6,000 to 12,000 people. The city subsequently emerged during the Prohibition era as a leading tourist hub and a center of illegal gambling. This era ended in the 1950s. Much of Galveston’s economy is centered in the tourism, health care, shipping, and financial industries. The 84-acre University of Texas Medical Branch campus with an enrollment of more than 2,500 students is a major economic force of the city. Galveston is home to six historic districts containing one of the largest and historically significant collections of 19th-century buildings in the United States, with over 60 structures listed in the National Register of Historic Places.
The city of Galveston is situated on Galveston Island, a barrier island off the Texas Gulf coast near the mainland coast. Made up of mostly sand-sized particles and smaller amounts of finer mud sediments and larger gravel-sized sediments, the island is unstable, affected by water and weather, and can shift its boundaries through erosion. The city is about 45 miles southeast of downtown Houston. The island is oriented generally northeast-southwest, with the Gulf of Mexico on the east and south, West Bay on the west, and Galveston Bay on the north. The island’s main access point from the mainland is the Interstate Highway 45 causeway that crosses West Bay on the island’s northeast side. A Deepwater channel connects Galveston’s harbor with the Gulf and the Gulf Intracoastal Waterway. According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has an area of 209.3 square miles, of which 41.2 square miles are land and 168.1 square miles, or 80.31%, are water. The island is 50 miles southeast of Houston.

Judge Henry is a fifth generation Texan, born and raised in the Houston area. After leaving active-duty and transferring to the Air Force Reserve in 1995, he moved back to League City where he has resided since. In 2010, he was elected in a landslide victory against a 16-year incumbent. After years of tax and spend policies and having the second highest public debt per capita in the State of Texas, Judge Henry cut the county tax rate each year he’s been in office and has reduced the public debt by close to 40 percent. Under his leadership, the county has reached its lowest tax rate in over 18 years – not seen since the year 2000. He also led the effort to reduce the number of elected officials in Galveston County, a move that’s rarely accomplished in any government. Judge Henry won one of the most contentious Primary battles in the 2018 election cycle and is unopposed for the first time in his career in the upcoming November 2018 General Election. His priorities for the coming year are improving infrastructure post Hurricane Harvey, modernizing Galveston County’s pre-trial program and addressing mental health challenges in the aftermath of the Santa Fe tragedy. Judge Henry is also a successful businessman. He built an aviation company in Galveston County, Talon Air Services, which is an authorized vendor of aircraft parts to the United States Government that has experienced significant growth in the last 12 months.
