HOUSTON – Mayor Sylvester Turner is losing one of his top aides, director of council relations William Paul Thomas, the man who is often seen at his side or standing behind him at almost every City Council meeting.

Federal officials confirm Thomas pleaded guilty in connection to a federal case, the details of which have not yet been widely released.

Mayor Turner said Thomas is retiring for personal reasons in relation to his health.

Thomas acted as a liaison for the mayor’s office as well as for city council.

Turner made the announcement Tuesday afternoon during a city council meeting.

During a brief news conference on Wednesday, Turner said he couldn’t speak on the federal allegations against Thomas.

“We know nothing,” Turner said. “No one has talked to me or my executive team. No one.”

“I can not talk to you about what he’s accused of doing because I don’t know anything,” the mayor added.

“I can not talk to you about what he’s accused of doing because I don’t know anything,” the mayor added.
