Her haters may be cheering, but for those of us who have either worked in or voted for her in her multiple campaigns for city council, controller and as the 61st mayor of Houston, it’s a bittersweet week for us.
Mayor Annise Parker after six years is serving the last week of her term as our mayor, and closes out 18 years of service as a Houston elected official.
As for what she is going to do after Mayor-elect Sylvester Turner takes over on January 2 and sworn in on January 4, she says she has applied for a one semester fellowship at Harvard’s Kenndy School of Government, but after that her plans are up in the air.
There are rumors however she might make a run for higher office in 2018.
Which one we’ll find out soon enough.
