William Paul Thomas is in popular demand by a lot of powerful people these days – and that’s not just because he’s always well dressed and in good spirits!
2 On the Beat has just learned that he is joining Mayor Annise Parker’s staff as Director of Council Relations.
I assume that means he’ll serve as the liaison between the Mayor’s office and help improve communication with all of the members of the Houston city council. Some behind the scenes arm twisting to help the Mayor pass her agenda, perhaps?
After taking a short leave of absence to work on Bill White’s gubernatorial campaign, Thomas recently returned to city hall and his position as Council Member Sue Lovell’s chief of staff.
Congratulations and best of luck William Paul. Make sure you encourage the Mayor and city council members to do interviews with the media 🙂
