Mayor Newhard: A Sense of Duty — 2 Comments

  1. This story reached me here in Texas. As the Education Director for the Texas Municipal Clerks Association, I’m so proud to read these words. I would love to know who the city secretary is being referenced from Port Isabel. Great job to Ms. Shorter and all of you in the Village of Warwick!

    • Hi Amy – My name is Jim Gilliam and I’m a native Texan transplanted to Warwick, NY – I’m the one who wrote our mayor Mr. Newhard – voted for him too! Anyhow, my mom Gertrude Gilliam was the City Secretary for the City of Port Isabel, TX until her death at John Sealy Hospital in Galveston. She was a great lady and a tireless City Secretary for Port Isabel. Since retiring I’ve written several books in which she appears as one of my characters. If you like – please email your snail mail address to me at jgill12775@warwick.net and I’ll send you a signed copy in her name.

      Thanks for responding,
