Congratulations to Mayor-Elect Sylvester Turner on a successful mayoral campaign. This past run-off election was a very close mayoral race between State Representative Sylvester Turner and former Kemah Mayor Bill King. “I want to thank the District K residents that came out in record numbers to participate in this important City election,” states Council Member Green. “This election illustrated that District K is a strong voting district that positively impacts citywide elections.”
District K also welcomes 2 new At-Large council members, Mike Knox (At-Large #1) and Amanda Edwards (At-Large #4) in addition to a new City Controller, Chris Brown. The other 2 At-Large council members, David Robinson (At-Large #2) and Jack Christie (At-Large #5) won their respective races and will retain the council seats.
The mayoral inauguration is scheduled for January 4, 2016.
