DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s Statement on Houston Mayor Annise Parker’s Reelection Victory

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.”
