Mayor-Elect Parker’s First News Conference

Houston Mayor-Elect Annise Parker held her first news conference Sunday morning,  the night after she made history by  becoming the first openly gay woman elected Mayor in the city of  Houston.

As the reality of  her victory sinks in,  Parker said she has a tough job ahead of her, looking for ways to cut spending in the city budget. 

“The city of Houston is in better shape financially than other cities in America, but we have problems,” said Parker.

“The first act of the incoming Mayor is to look for spending cuts,” said Parker
