Mayor Turner on tension with firefighters: 'I expect for you to be disciplined'
and here I thought that the alphabet soup Mayor before Turner was bad... boy was I wrong!

Quote:He said a fire inspector was working security at a Rockets game Thursday and he refused to shake Turner’s hand.

“He (Turner) chose to get very close to him and start yelling at (him), telling him that he is his boss and that 'He will respect me,'” Lancton said.

Lancton said members of Turner's detail took the firefighter's identification and wrote down his information.

“In a position of power (Turner) tried to intimidate and then threaten that firefighter and say he would personally make sure he would never work here again,” Lancton said.

Strong leaders get respect. Weak leaders have to demand it, but what they get is not really respect.

Turner is a world class sleazeball attorney.

Can't believe the people of Houston forgot the scams he was found to be participating in before his previous mayoral run when Bob Lanier was elected. He must have had totally incompetent opponents.

That is a death sentence in Cincinnati. You can pay a hooker with a check, Jerry Springer, but if you diss cops firemen game over.

Eventually Mayor Whitmire got beat. Turner lead and Bob Lanier was 2nd while Whitmire was 3rd. Lanier won the runoff.
