HPOU Endorses Sylvester Turner for Houston Mayor

The Houston Police Officers’ Union has endorsed St. Rep. Sylvester Turner for mayor of the City of Houston. After considering other candidates in the mayor’s race, HPOU President Ray Hunt said choosing to endorse Turner was easy for the police officers because of his long track record on public safety issues.

“For over 25 years, Rep. Turner has been a leader in our community, taking on the tough issues,” said Hunt. “Rep. Turner puts public safety first. We know he will work with the men and women of the Houston Police Department and every Houstonian to keep our city safe.”

“Thank you, Houston Police Officers, for placing your confidence in me,” said Rep. Turner. “We will work in partnership to keep crime, drugs and gangs out of our neighborhoods and inspire a new spirit of trust between the community and those who put their lives on the line to protect us.”

During his time in the Texas Legislature, Rep. Turner has been a respected leader in Houston and has always been a staunch supporter of public safety. For more information on Turner, please visit www.sylvesterturner.com
