Can somebody tell me what years he was mayor and why it was considered to be filled with turmoil?

Henry was mayor in 1982. His term lasted about 6 months and then he was impeached.

Thank you for your response. Could you tell me more details about why he was impeached?

I've been told that Henry was in office for a year and was removed in early 1983, not 6 months. He was impeached after an alderman testified that Henry had threatened him in an attempt to influence the aldermans vote on a bill. It is illegal to do that and the mayor was charged with a crime, and then impeached. There were some other things going on at the time that I cannot remember. Although brief, Henry's term was certainly filled with plenty of drama.
