Mayor Annise Parker’s Victory Speech

It was close, but Houston Mayor Annise D. Parker did get that second term.   Although she barely got to the magic 51% mark to avoid a runoff, she still garnered 59.920 votes and got reelected

Jack O’Connor, the top vote getter amongst her five opponents got 17,265 votes or 15% of the total.

That makes this Parker’s eighth straight win in a citywide contest dating back to her 1997 run for the Position 2 at large city council seat.  

She served three terms as an at large city council member, three terms as city controller, and will now be in the mayor’s chair for another two years.  

Here’s her victory speech from last night.
