The Health Fitness Revolution team and our founder Samir Becic would like to congratulate Mayor Sylvester Turner on winning a second term to serve the city of Houston as Mayor! As we mentioned before, he’s done more than any mayor before to promote health and fitness in the city, for which we commend and support him.
On Saturday, December 14th, Mayor Sylvester Turner defeated Tony Buzbee during Saturday’s runoff election. Unofficial results released by the Harris County Clerk’s Office on Sunday morning show Turner capturing 56.04% of the vote with 112,955 votes. A total of 201,551 votes were cast.
Turner told the Houston Chronicle in a post-win interview: “I said when I came in, in 2015, I wasn’t going to ignore things because they were not politically convenient. That has not changed. If I have to expend political capital to get some things done, that’s exactly what we’re going to do.”
Thank you, Mayor Turner, for everything you do for the City of Houston and we look forward to even more exciting health programs in Houstonians’ lives over the next 4 years!
