Houston, Tx - Proposition B received more votes than Mayor Sylvester Turner. Remember that when you listen to him talk about his disdain for the fire department.
Last November Houston voters approved Proposition B, which allows firefighters to be paid the same as Houston police officers.
Now Houston's disappointing Mayor is threatening to layoff 400-500 firefighters again. He insists we just can't pay firefighters that much money but he recently spent $3 million for live music at the airport and an additional half a million for legal fees to fight the fire department in court.
Mayor Turner isn't laying anyone off from his own scandal ridden office but he thinks we can afford to lose firefighters.
Maybe it's time to lose Mayor Turner? He's up for reelection in November. Just sayin'.
