President George W. Bush walks hand-in-hand with Galveston Mayor Lyda Ann Thomas Tuesday, Sept. 16, 2008, during a visit to the Texas area hard hit by last weekend’s Hurricane Ike. Walking with them from left are: Charlie Kelly, emergency manager coordinator for the City of Galveston; President Bush, Mayor Thomas, Steve LeBlanc, Galveston City Manager and Texas Congressman Nick Lampson.
