Island Matters

A facts-only, 

non-profit source 

of news for the Island

Island Matters‘ overarching vision for the City of South Padre Island is

to have (1) 100% transparency in government and (2) a family-friendly environment for the Island.  

When one looks around the world, except for the Disney cities, every great tourist destination was first a great place to live for its residents. Island Matters supports the City of South Padre Island attracting young families and building a strong economy for the Island that is robust all 12 months of the year.

Island Matters wants everyone who cares about our island, especially accountability on our island, to be a reader.  Island Matters will be what SPI residents and non-residents alike will see three days a week.  

As with any news organization, but especially with a non-profit news organization, there is a clear firewall between the organization's publishing (fundraising) side and the editorial side.  Island Matters will continue to be a facts-only source of accountability in local government with all editorial decisions made by island residents.

Our Strength is Our Membership!
