I cannot even guess at the number of times I heard Sylvester Turner promise to implement zero-based budgeting on the 2015 campaign trail. Here is one such instance during a KUHF radio interview.
|The images below are some other instances that Jasper Scherer at the Houston Chronicle found and tweeted out recently.|
But within weeks of taking office, Turner began to backtrack:
“You know, we talked a lot about zero-based budgeting,” Turner said. “It’s very, very difficult to do zero-based budgeting in a five-month period. That takes a much longer period of time.” Houston Public Media, January 27, 2016
Four years later, we are still waiting on zero-based budgeting.
If you would like to have a mayor who will actually keep his word and bring zero-based budgeting to City Hall, join our campaign and vote Bill King on November 5.
