spacer center red

Galveston, April 4, 2019 – With these words, “We can do better,” former Galveston Mayor Roger Quiroga officially filed papers and launched his campaign to become Galveston Mayor in 2020.

As a former three-term Galveston mayor, born and raised on Galveston Island, Quiroga said, “I believe it is important that I enter this race now, because I believe that Galveston needs a change.

“I am extremely excited about the opportunity to serve the citizens of Galveston once more, and to work with you to create a strong future for this great city and its people.”

In announcing his run, Quiroga cited his previous record as Mayor. “When I first became Mayor, the city was broke. With a small team, we hunkered down, made smart choices, achieved goals, and dug out of our fiscal hole, setting the stage for future progress.

“Now is a time of new challenges and opportunities. First and foremost, I want to make Galveston a safer place to live and raise a family – for all of our citizens – where people move their families to benefit from our schools, culture and way of life.

I want Galveston to become a more affordable city, with only the level of government and bureaucracy necessary to function safely and smoothly. I want Galveston to be truly business friendly and a vibrant place to invest and grow, fully in keeping with our Island heritage and the many attributes that make Galveston unique. I will strongly support and emphasize public safety.

“Fiscal responsibility, along with honesty and integrity, will be foremost among the values of my campaign, and of my future time in office,” he said.

Citing a sense of mission for his campaign, Quiroga said, “we will engage with and involve all citizens and all walks of life in order to enhance public safety, improve public value, create transparency, preserve nature’s gifts and our environment, build community trust and mobilize Galveston forward. All of our citizens need to benefit from Galveston’s many assets, including the port and tourism. We need to put our citizens first.”

“I seek support from every corner of our Island,” he said. “It’s time to take Galveston to the next level.”
Quiroga filed his candidacy papers at Galveston City Hall at 10 a.m. April 4.

The Roger Quiroga for Mayor website is www.rogerquirogaformayor.com. The campaign Facebook page is under Roger “Bo” Quiroga. As Quiroga filed his papers, the campaign issued on Twitter: #BoforMayor: Let’s make Galveston all that it should be. #VOTEBO.

Roger’s first official campaign stop after filing was with an interested citizens coffee group at the El Jardin Restaurant at 413 24th Street in Galveston. Excited about his campaign, Quiroga repeated that he would campaign in every community of Galveston Island. “This is an important election. It’s time for a change,” he said.
