“I’ve always known Houston is the best but now others recognize that, too,” said Mayor Parker. “Just last year Houston was named ‘the 7th best place in the world to visit in 2013,’ by the New York Times, ‘the #1 city in America to further a career,’ according to Monster.com, and, my favorite, Forbes Magazine says we are ‘America’s Coolest City.’
“But I know the best can always get better. Our city government is cutting waste, borrowing less and doing more on a pay-as-you-go basis, so we can afford vital programs, like public safety, after-school programs, new libraries and demolishing dangerous buildings. Our dedicated fund for street repairs and flood prevention is making a difference. And our economy is continuing to grow and attract new businesses and jobs.”
A businesswoman, community leader and mother, Annise Parker is completing her second term as Mayor of Houston – with a strong focus on growing our local economy, keeping Houston safe and improving the quality of life for every Houstonian. Annise has also served for six years as a city councilmember and six years as controller. She worked for 20 years in Houston’s oil and gas industry after graduating from Rice University and served in a variety of community leadership roles before her election to public office.
