Since taking office, Mayor Sylvester Turner has put a special emphasis on Government Relations for the City of Houston. From federal funds to speed in flood mitigation, to state level reforms on Houston Sustainable Pension plan, Mayor Turner’s Government Relations team is engaged in a number of legislative fronts.
The GR team helps generate information for both the Mayor, Council Members, and the public with regards to efforts made to partner with different levels of government to solve problems and provide resources for the citizens of Houston. To that end, we hope you will find this website useful in providing supportive materials.
Below, you will find two documents that summarize the work of the GR team for state level advocacy. First, Legislative Principles document details the GR team’s mission statement and specific areas of policy work. This version was passed by City Council on October 19th. Secondly, our Legislative Priorities are specific measures that the Government Relations team shared with our Houston delegation and looked to enact during the 85th Legislative Session.
