Why wouldn’t you want another guy in the locker room that brings a championship mentality and a guy who can still play?” he said. “So, of course, it bothered me, but f**k it.

No,” Turner said during the customary press conference held after the City Council’s meeting.The November ballot will also include bonds for general improvements in Houston which would be in the hundreds of millions.Bob Stein, a Political Science professor at Rice University, says Turner’s change of mind is wise because “…you put that in front of voters and they’re gonna have a hard time swallowing it and, if you added to that the revenue cap repeal, I think you would get people voting against all three.”Houstonians approved the revenue cap in 2005 and eliminating it could mean a property tax increase.Turner has supported repealing the cap, or at least changing it, since he was campaigning for Mayor back in 2015 because he contends it holds down the City’s budget and limits the ability to provide services.
