HOUSTON, TX - Texas State Representative Sylvester Turner officially kicked off his campaign to be Houston's next mayor Saturday at Minute Maid Park.

"This is a campaign to improve our roads, our streets, our infrastructure," Sylvester said. "Public safety is critically important, and then building opportunities for everyone in this city."

Sylvester joins a crowded mayoral race.  This is the third time he's run for the position, having lost previously in 1991 and 2003.

"One of the reasons we're at the baseball stadium - you can have strike one, you can have strike two, but when you're up the third time, that's when you hit the home run," Sylvester said.

Sylvester has been a state representative since 1988.
