Marking one year at the helm of the local planning and construction committee, Deputy Mayor Meir Turgeman – of Mayor Nir Barkat’s Jerusalem Will Succeed list at the city council and also a member of the Likud for 15 years – sat down with In Jerusalem and answered some questions.

Turgeman, religiously observant, married and the father of four, replaced former deputy mayor Kobi Kahlon, who left the political scene after his brother, Moshe Kahlon, became finance minister in the national government.
