It’s been a little over 60 days since Hurricane Harvey devastated the Houston area. At the helm of the rebuilding of the city is Mayor Sylvester Turner. He has demonstrated decisiveness, leadership and compassion as the city confronts the challenges of today and strategically plans for the future.

In effort to give the community first-hand knowledge of “What’s Next,” you are invited to “Conversations and Coffee with Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner” at The Power Center from 8:30 a.m. to 10:30 am.

The Defender invites the community and our readers to join the mayor 60 days after Hurricane Harvey to gain insight into what is being done today and how the community can help in the process.

Considering Mayor Turner is approaching the two-year mark of his four-year term, the topics of discussion include “Hurricane Harvey aftermath,” explaining the election ballot propositions, racial issues in Houston and goals for next year.

“We are facing one of the biggest challenges our city will face in the coming year, following unprecedented flooding due to Harvey,” Houston Mayor Turner said. “I look forward to sharing information on how we will recover and rebuild at the upcoming event hosted by the Defender.”

Defender Publisher and CEO Sonny Messiah Jiles added, “The Defender is excited to have Mayor Turner as our guest for “Conversations & Coffee” at this pivotal time considering the city’s winning attitude of focusing on opportunities to be better for the future while confronting the racial and financial issues that must be addressed. We invite community members to join us on Saturday, November 4 at The Power Center at 8:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. for Conversations and Coffee.
