According to a release from the city, Tim Paulissen, League City’s Mayor is quoted as saying: “League City is an excellent place to start a career and to raise a family. Our wonderful schools, the addition of University of Texas Medical Branch hospital and clinics here to the city, our small businesses and our proximity to employers in both Galveston and Houston make this a great location for people looking for career opportunities.”
