According to the city’s website , the job of  controller is to balance the fiscal needs of Houston with the politics of popular elections and act as a check-and-balance to the Mayor and City Council.

As we’ve seen recently, that means the Controller and Mayor are sometimes at odds over the budget. 

Houston, like much of the country, is facing some tough economic times ahead. Sales and Property tax revenues are down, and the city needs to hold the line on how it spends tax payer dollars, as well as possibly trimming staff and services.

You can learn more about the candidates for controller by visiting their websites.

As we get closer to the election, 2 On The Beat, and KPRC Local 2 will give your more in-depth information about each of  the candidates qualifications to hold the office, and ideas that each hopes to implement if elected.
