During the Defender Conversations and Coffee event, Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner talked about a number of issues from the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey to his plans for the last two years of his four year term. The event sponsored by Kelsey-Seybold Clinic was held at the Kingdom Builders’ Center. The mayor addressed questions from Defender host and CEO Sonny Messiah Jiles and community members submitted some of the interview questions.
