Press Release
Tuesday, January 30, 2018

GALVESTON ISLAND, TEXAS (JANUARY 30, 2018) – Galvestonian John Paul Listowski has announced his bid for the Galveston City Council District Five seat.

John Paul was born and raised on Galveston Island. After graduation from O’Connell High School, he earned a degree in Construction Science from Texas A&M University and then returned to Galveston after graduation to live by the water and give back to his island home. He quickly gained experience by working with land developers and builders specializing in both residential and commercial development. His enterprising spirit soon led to active involvement in the community and service on several civic boards and commissions.

“I am ready to serve the city of Galveston in the District Five seat and I’m committed to making Galveston a better place for residents, visitors, and businesses. Councilwoman Terrilyn Tarlton-Shannon has done a great job over the past six years as our District Five Representative and I hope to continue the great work she has started,” states Listowski.

Listowski has an extensive history of service and volunteerism on the island. He served as Vice Chairman of the City of Galveston’s Landmark Commission (2003 – 2007), and as Chairman of the City of Galveston’s Planning Commission (2003 – 2007). Additionally, he was a member of the City of Galveston’s Property Finance Authority (2007 – 2017), Building Board of Adjustments (past board member), Zoning Board of Adjustments (2013 – 2014), Industrial Development Corporation (2014 – 2016), and Redevelopment Authority (2106 – Present). He is a member of the Galveston Economic Development Partnership and has served as committee chair and past board member of the Galveston Regional Chamber of Commerce.

With the knowledge learned from both his work experience and community involvement, he started HomeLife Builders with the help of Sam Jolin. He oversees business development and works with clients through the development, planning and bidding stages of their custom home.

Galveston City elections will be held on May 5, 2018. Complete election information can be found on  or
