League City Mayor Pat Hallisey was named the 2018 Citizen of the Year by the Galveston County Daily News during a special award ceremony on Thursday night. The newspaper honored citizens throughout the county for their contributions to the community during the past year. Hallisey was recognized for his tireless efforts to help the community during Hurricane Harvey, despite experiencing health issues and being affected by the storm himself.
“This community has been so good to me and anything I do for this community is just payment on account for what it’s done for me,” said Hallisey.
The mayor will be featured on the front page of the Daily News’s annual “Profiles” magazine.
