I’ve really enjoyed the chance to get to know each of these gentlemen as well as the constituents they serve.”
Prosper Mayor Ray Smith said, “Scott Turner is a man of integrity and strong moral character. He’ll provide dynamic, energetic leadership to address the needs of our region. A fiscal conservative, he’ll lead the charge to do away with wasteful government spending. It is with pleasure that I endorse Republican Scott Turner for the Texas House of Representatives.”
