Following the announcement that Houston Mayor Annise Parker won her race for reelection, Democratic National Committee Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz released this statement:
“During her time as the mayor of Houston, Annise Parker led the city out of a recession and toward a future of economic growth and prosperity, creating new jobs and making improvements to the city's infrastructure, the transportation system and city parks.
“As a woman holding elected office myself, I was enormously proud when Annise was elected, and over the last four years, it’s been inspiring to see her lead the city as a problem solver. I had no doubt that the voters of Houston would reward her hard work.
“Congratulations to Mayor Parker, to her campaign and to the people of Houston.”
