Transcript Whitmire, Lanier. Turner duke it out at the Mayoral Campus Debate Mayoral candidates Sylvester Turner and Bob Lanier took their best shots at Houston Mayor Kathy Whitmire during a live, televised debate at the UH Hilton—with Turner emerging as a surprising crowd-pleaser. "People ten years ago elected Whitmire and she appointed Lanier, both have had an opportunity to serve and now is the time for both to take a break," Turner said. The Students' Association and the Student Program Board hosted the candidates' debate in the Grand Ballroom of the Conrad Hilton Hotel, where a poor turnout of about 100 of the university community left many seats unoccupied. The candidates fielded many questions from five panelists, including: Tim Fleck, senior editor of the Houston Press; Jane Ely, Houston Chronicle columnist; Chris Payne, Daily Cougar editor; Michael Berry, SA president; and Richard Murray, UH political science professor. Whitmire, running for an unprecedented sixth term in office, chastised both Lanier and Turner for spouting inaccurate facts, blasting her opponents for saying the Houston Police Department has lost 4.5 percent of its force. "This (4.5 percent) is half of what it was when I came into office," she said. She said Lanier and Turner don't have the facts on the Metro rail system's current direction, refuting that it will go only from Downtown to the Galleria. Although Lanier wanted Houston to rid itself of the monorail plan, Turner said he is in favor Houston having a rail system—just not the one Metro has on the drawing board. "I disapprove of this project, but not in destroying Metro," Turner said. Turner suggested having the major stops of the rail plan at Houston's major airports. Whitmire boasted of vastly improved city revenues, Houston's status as an internationally known city and her efforts to improve the environment. "We've opposed hazardous waste sites and have established a strong record dealing with environmental issues," Whitmire said. Lanier, however, gave Whitmire the grad of 'F' for her environmental record. Lanier also charged Whitmire with political doublespeak. "When the mayor says there are more jobs, they are not in the city limits," he said. Lanier again reiterated his stance on using Metro funds to bring in additional police. "My first duty will be to make the citizens safe," he said. But he was challenged on how he would pay for additional police officers, turner and Whitmire say Metro funds cannot be used for HPD. Lanier said he would raise city taxes if had to in order to ensure a larger police force and would ask police officer to work one day of overtime. Turner staunchly defended his proposal for a city wide juvenile curfew, saying civil liberties will have to take a backseat to making Houston safe. Although he was head of the Harris County Delegation in the Texas Legislature, Turner was questioned as to why he felt qualified to be Houston's major in light of the dismal reputation of the Legislature. "I believe it's a lot better now," Turner said. He added that the Legislature got considerably better when he first arrived there, prompting laughter from the audience. "I am one out of 150 andSylvester Turner hasbeen able to deal with Democrats, Republicans, blacks, whites and browns. I'm one out of 150, but one can't turn it around overnight," Turner said. Whitmire chided Turner for not initiating or showinginterestinstatecrime bills until he decided to run for mayor and also welcomed him into the Houston voting district, implying he was not a Houston resident when he announced his candidacy Turner fought back- although he didn't address Whitmire's implication-say ing he is a native Houstonian and again tickled the cmwd, praising his alma mater, UH. Both Whitmire and Lanier were asked questions about some of the ethical charges leveled against them in recent headline. Whitmire fired back when asked if she had met with and berated some* ivluc- tant campaign contributors in People ten years ago elected Whitmire and she appointed Lanier, both have had the opportunity to serve and now is the time for both to take a break. a City Han dining room who had yet to cough up additional campaign funds. She called it an absurdity. 'Yes, there was a meeting in the dining room, but we often have meeting. I did not solicit anyone for funds."- Debbie Housel In The News
