-SOUTHWEST HOUSTON

Mayor Parker is in Southwest Houston, taking time from her busy schedule to sit down with the public, and lend a listening ear.

Mayor Parker says, “I’m here for two hours, and it’s three minuets, although I’m really bad, I can’t really cut anybody off after three minuets, so it seems to take up a lot of the afternoon. It’d be terrible to sit here and have nobody show up, but everyone of these, and I do them, quarterly basis, I do three minuets with the mayor, tell a town halls, and web chats and I rotate through em, and there’s always a lot of engagement.”

One by one, Houstonians had the opportunity to sit with Mayor Parker and voice their questions and concerns, but, they only got 90-seconds to do it!

Dorthey Dawson, who got some face time with the Mayor says, “Let me say it was…good, but the follow through is what I’m interested in. That’s what I’m interested in.”

Janice Catley is another resident that made it out, and she says, “It was very motivating, I think she was listening, she gave me some really good positive feedback.”
It’s not often you get to see a public figure, like Mayor Parker, making themselves available for “one-on-ones” with the public. That kind of thing usually tapers off after the campaigning, but that’s not how it’s done here in ┬áH-town!
