Houston Mayor Annise Parker Talks to the League of Women Voters

The League was proud to host Houston Mayor Annise Parker as the opening speaker of our 51st National Convention, held June 6-10, 2014, in Dallas, TX. Mayor Parker, who is also a member of the League of Women Voters of Houston, spoke about the critical role that cities play in our government and democracy at large. She emphasized the importance of transparency in government, the urgent need for redistricting reform and how Houston – and other cities like it – can help lead the fight against climate change.
