This is good to see.
Houston Mayor Annise Parker today received the endorsement of fellow Mayor Julián Castro of San Antonio.
“I’ve joined with Houston teachers, police and sheriffs to support the re-election of your mayor, Annise Parker,” said Mayor Castro. “Annise’s record of results is full of accomplishments of which any mayor would be proud.”
Mayor Castro cited major achievements of Mayor Parker’s administration, including the Hire Houston First program, putting more police officers on the street, securing $7 million for after-school programs and cutting millions in waste to fully fund public safety.
“With all the gridlock in Washington, America’s cities are leading the way with innovative solutions to complex problems,” said Mayor Castro. “With Annise as mayor of Houston, our cities can work together to make real progress not only for Houston and San Antonio, but also for Texas and the nation.”
“I deeply appreciate Mayor Castro’s endorsement,” said Mayor Parker. “Under Mayor Castro’s leadership, San Antonio has continued its rise as a Great American City. An inspiration to Texas Latinos, Mayor Castro has made our state stronger for all Texans.”
