Congressman Turner practiced law in Dayton for over 17 years and in 1991, he opened his own private legal practice specializing in real estate and corporate law.

Turner served as Mayor of the City of Dayton for eight years. During his tenure, he was a strong proponent of neighborhood revitalization, crime reduction, increased funding for safety forces, economic development and job creation. He created Rehabarama, a private-public partnership to rehabilitate neglected housing in Dayton’s historic neighborhoods, which had significant economic impact on the region and received national awards. 

For the 5 years prior to Mayor Turner’s leadership, Dayton did not have a balanced budget. Turner worked across the aisle and balanced the budget for all eight years of his tenure. He also successfully reduced police response time by 40%, added 54 police officers to the force, and established a development fund that awarded over $19 million in grants for housing and job producing projects.

Congressman Turner was first elected to Congress in 2002. In Congress, Turner serves as a subcommittee Chairman on the House Armed Services Committee and a member of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence.

In the 109th Congress, Congressman Turner served as Chairman of the Oversight and Government Reform’s Subcommittee on Federalism and the Census. During his tenure, he helped save the Community Development Block Grant Program.

Prior to Congressman Turner’s election, there was no advocate for Wright-Patterson Air Force Base on the important House Armed Services Committee. Congressman Turner filled that void and throughout his time in Congress, Wright-Patt has successfully added approximately 10,000 jobs and remains the largest single-site employer in the state of Ohio.

Congressman Turner currently serves as the Ranking Member of the House Armed Services Subcommittee on Strategic Forces, where he has jurisdiction over the nation’s nuclear arsenal, the Department of Defense’s intelligence programs, and also over missile defense systems.
