56 Houston Precinct Chairs Make Early Endorsements of Parker for Mayor

Houston, TX – Today, the Annise Parker for Mayor Campaign announced endorsements from 56 Houston precinct chairs. These local leaders have stepped forward to support Parker for her leadership and experience, long-time commitment to neighborhood and community development and ability to manage Houston’s economy during troubled economic times.
“It is critical that we have a mayor who understands city departments and finances as we work ourselves through the recession.  Without question, Annise has the leadership skills, analytical ability and the right vision for the City of Houston.  She is the kind of mayor we need for Houston,”  said Sherrie Matula, Precinct 721 Chair and Senate District 11 Chair for Harris County.

“These endorsements are especially significant to me as they come from communities throughout Houston,” said Parker.  “It will take all of us to keep our city moving forward in these tough times, and I am grateful to have the support of these local leaders.”

“Annise has represented all of Houston for nearly 12 years, first as council member at large and then as city controller.  She is a forward-thinking leader with a proven track record.  I appreciate her common-sense, common-ground approach to government and am confident that she is the candidate we need to move Houston forward,” stated Richard Cantú, Precinct 105 Judge (since 1996).
