Mayor Sylvester Turner’s Statement on the Democratic Primary Election for Texas House of Representatives District 139

HOUSTON – Mayor Sylvester Turner issued the following statement today:

“It has come to my attention that Randy Bates, a candidate in the Democratic primary election for Texas House of Representatives District 139 – the district I used to represent and still reside in – sent out a mail piece that prominently featured my photo, without my consent. The clear intention was to give a misleading impression that I support his candidacy.

“Let me be clear: I have not endorsed any candidate in the race for District 139. I have previously made that clear to all the candidates. Mr. Bates was wrong to use my photo without my permission, and he should make it clear to the public that he does not have my support.

“I encourage the voters in District 139 to research all the candidates and make an informed choice before casting their ballots.”

Remembering Jim Guidry
