May 15, 2019 – This morning, during the weekly City Council meeting, Mayor Turner announced that a state district judge ruled Proposition B unconstitutional.

Mayoral Candidate Tony Buzbee received the news of the ruling as he was meeting with a group of 24 HFD Arson Division firefighters at the Houston Firefighters' Relief and Retirement Fund Memorial Garden. Buzbee’s response echoed that of the firefighters: “The smugness with which the Mayor announced the court’s ruling further reinforced my belief that he has a personal vendetta against Houston’s firefighters. He thinks he has won the battle; but the truth is he has lost the war.” Proposition B was approved by 298,000 voters in the last election. Buzbee further stated “the firefighters will ultimately get the raise we all voted for, one way or the other. We will not allow this mayor to use taxpayer money to pay his former law firm to use legal tricks to defy the will of the voters. If you are a politician in this town and you are supporting this mayor, you best jump ship. Your photo ops will be used against you very soon. If you are a donor, you might want to invest in someone else. If you do business with the city and you are a Turner campaign donor, get ready to be turned out. Change is coming!”
