Odessa Mayor David Turner running for at-large city council seat

Turner has served as mayor for eight years, the most any one person can hold the position

ODESSA, Texas — David Turner has served as Odessa's mayor for eight years, but that doesn't mean he's ready to stop representing his city.

After serving the maximum length any one person can serve as mayor in Odessa, Turner is still hoping to get elected as a city council member.

Turner will be running for the at-large position, which is currently held by Peggy Dean.

In addition to serving as Mayor since 2012, Turner was also on the Odessa College Board of Trustees for six years.

Half of the city council seats are up for grabs in the 2020 election, with Districts 3, 4, and 5 all set until 2022.
