Houston mayor sworn in for second four-year term
HOUSTON (AP) - Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner has been sworn in for a second four-year term to lead the nation’s fourth largest city. During an inauguration ceremony on Thursday, Turner said some of the issues he will focus on include improving employment opportunities for residents, enhancing services for the city’s homeless population and focusing on flood control projects. Turner, who led Houston through the devastating floods of Hurricane Harvey in 2017, won a second term in December after defeating millionaire trial lawyer Tony Buzbee in a runoff election. This will be Turner’s final term as mayors in Houston are limited to two four-year terms.
