Just What Kind of Houston Mayor Will Annise Parker Make?

We don’t know Annise Parker personally. And we have yet to get her home address to send out our holiday card. And while Houston’s community might be familiar with her from her city controller tenure, we’re just getting to know her. But simply watching Houston’s new mayor-elect, Parker strikes us as being two things: 1) Effortlessly confident in her ability; 2) Not gonna take shit from nobody. We’re not making a premature judgment call on how she’ll fare as Houston’s topper, but so far, consider us subscribed.
