D. Kay Wise

A source with knowledge of Port Arthur's City Council Incumbent D. Kay Wise's previous employment said Thursday afternoon that her assertion that she lives at 735 Stilwell is untrue and that the company, GP Industrial Contractors, based out of Port Arthur, who used to employ Wise, paid approximately $17,000 in rent for her over a 17-month period as part of her fringe benefit package.

Attempts to reach Wise for comment were unsuccessful.

Derrick Freeman wears Port Arthur on his sleeve.

Born and raised in the city, Freeman has seen and experienced a lot of what Port Arthur has to offer; from his father having to endure the constant worry of “layoff lists” in the 1980s to the present day P.A., where as a married 35-year-old father of three, he and his wife, a teacher in PAISD, are carving out a life in a place whose future is as diverse as the people that make up the population.
