Mayor Turner We Support You


Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner in his news conference indicated that he would cancel the Texas Republican Party’s in-person convention and event that was scheduled to be held in downtown Houston at the George R. Brown Convention Center on July 16.


The Mayor said, “Look, these are some very serious times and for the public safety of people attending the convention, their employees, their family members and the people of Houston, the public health concerns are first and foremost.”


Republican Chair James Dickey criticized the mayor for what he said was a political calculation, rather than a safety measure.


Texas was the earliest state to open for business. We could have never imagined that the virus would come back and cause a more serious problem, especially in the city’s poorer area.


This morning I was talking to Kenneth Li, Chairman of the Southwestern District which has been the hardest hit area. We discussed what we can do for local residents and the many shopping centers and apartment complexes.


This is a very critical time we are facing now, and we urge all community leaders to come out and join hands with the City to encourage our residents to follow CDC guidelines to protect our people.


We really regret that so many of our small businesses are still suffering big losses and some of them have already closed down. And many lives have been lost, but yet, we are still watching the political games being played on all levels all across the country.


Mayor Turner, we will support you. After all, we are in the same family.

   我們支持特納市長的決定

德州休斯敦疫情日趨嚴重巿長特納在記者會上緊急呼籲市民要做最之打算號稱世界最大的休斯敦醫療中心之床位已不敷使用德州共和黨大會還要在市中心結集七千人開會,被市長以疫情擴散不宜召開爲由而拒絕但是共和黨已提出訴求堅持是人民之權利。

回顧過去四個月來德州是五月初正式局部開放之大州州長艾伯特爲了配合川普之政策首先響應但是一個多月來沒有想到疫情對德州加州及佛羅裏達州之反撲疫情難予控制。

遺憾的是確定人數最高的還是在貧困公寓密集之地區他們的醫療和生活遭遇十分艱困多半是服務于餐廳旅館等其中又以拉丁裔及非裔爲主。

我們呼籲大家來共同支持特納市長立即重啓一切可能之措施包括居家令等來挽救疫情不能爲了經濟問題而犧牲生命。

今晨我和鄰近之西南區包括華埠之區長李雄討論如何立即採取補救措施首要是對此地區之公寓商業圈進行消毒工作促請大家遵守戴口罩社交距離之規定。

事態已經十分嚴峻我們希望大家能共同努力來拯救我們的家園。
