The city of Floresville has a new city manager, following a unanimous decision of council members present for a Sept. 5 special meeting.

Henrietta Turner, MBA, will join the city Tuesday, Oct. 1, according to councilmen John W. Guerrero and Jim Miller after the meeting. She takes the helm following the resignation last month of former City Manager Andy Joslin.

Turner’s city management experience dates from 1995 and includes stints as the village manager for Sauk Village, Ill., and as city manager for Country Club Hills, Ill.

“It’s taking a giant step forward for the city, going out to find competent, qualified personnel,” Miller said.

Guerrero agreed, adding, “I think she’s well-qualified. This is going to take the city in new directions with new ideas and a fresh perspective.”

She clearly has demonstrated a lack of integrity in the past. She was FIRED as a result of her actions in her capacity as a city manager. Does that mean she will do it ... Read More Read More

One thing I have found is just because people make mistakes, doesn't mean they cannot come back from them.

She seems qualified, she has the experience. I don't think ... Read More Read More
