And it's a big one for the GLBTQ community in Houston! Out lesbian Annise Parker, who has served on Houston's City Council and as City Controller, is running for Mayor! Both Miss Ginger and Boy Ginger have met Annise on several occassions and have always been struck by her smile and her sincerity. She is known for having run a tight ship with the city's pursestrings, which is important in our current economic environment! Better yet, while she is active, visible, and supportive within the GLBTQ community, the word on the street among the straights is that she is respected for having refrained from using her position to further a "gay" agenda. Personally, I think she has been more than "neutral", but clearly shrewd enough to remain fair, consistent, and popular!
There are 3 other candidates, and Annise and 2 others are considered "front runners". There is likely to be a run-off, and Miss G is quite sure Annise will be a part of it! Stay tuned for tomorrow nights election results- right here on TFBOMGG!
