Houston’s First Woman Mayor Wants To Help Elect The Second.

Former Houston Mayor Kathy Whitmire will be in Houston this weekend, and has announced plans to hold a fundraiser Thursday night benefiting Houston Mayoral Candidate Annise Parker.

The minimum $250 per person charge at the door will help Parker raise funds for her campaign, and will help her continue an aggressive strategy to reach voters between now and election day.

Whitmire and Parker have a connection that goes back several years. 

When I googled both names, I came up with this story from OutSmart Magazine. 

OutSmart is backing Parker in her bid to become the city’s next top leader and first openly gay mayor.


Parker was a volunteer in Whitmire’s early bid for elected office, so now it appears that Houston’s first woman mayor is doing her part to help a friend, and elect the city’s next mayor of Houston.

The polls look good for Parker.  Most independent polling shows Parker  running a close second to frontrunner Peter Brown, and slightly ahead of  Gene Locke.

Early voting ends Friday, October 30th. Election day is Tuesday, November 3rd.
