“It is an honor to pay tribute to Mayor Turner,” said Velma Trayham, founder of ThinkZILLA PR & Consulting Group. “He is a prolific leader who has left an indelible mark not only on the city of Houston, but the entire State of Texas. He has already established a tremendous legacy, and we know that he will continue to champion our communities, create even more opportunities and solidify a bright future for all of his constituents.”
