Crime, Flooding, and Trump are the major Houston
Houston, United States Of America
Mayor Sylvester Turner is seeking a second term as a mayor. The mayor is hoping to use the antipathy that the residents of the city have against US President Donald Trump. Mr.Turner's biggest competitor in his race to the mayor is Tony Buzbee. Tony Buzbee is a donator to Trump's cause and has no political history. Mayor has repeatedly highlighted the close relations of Mr. Buzbee with the US president in his bid to become the mayor for a second term. Donald Trump is hugely unpopular in the city, which mostly consists of Democrats supporters. Allegations of corruption in City hall, crime rates, and the slow pace of recovery of hurricane Harvey are other issues that have come up and may decide the result of the elections. Renee Cross, the senior director of the Hobby School of Public Affairs at the University of Houston, said that she feels that likening Mr.Buzbee to Donald Trump is a very effective strategy.
