State of the City: Challenged but Strong
City of Houston

April, 2011

Despite some challenges, the state of our city remains strong and financially secure.  Houston is

still the best city in the country in which to live and work.  We remain better off financially than any other big city and we have the best prospects to emerge from this recession as a cleaner, safer, thriving city with abundant jobs.

 

This first year in office has been very productive.  We've been fighting crime, growing our

economy, creating jobs, planning for the future and saving money.  We've been reforming, streamlining, modernizing and transforming the way we do business.  Have there been challenges?  You bet!  Have we met them head on?  You bet!  There are more challenges ahead, but I also know there are good times ahead.  I am certain of this.    

 

Nothing compares to being mayor of your hometown - a town as great as this one.  The opportunity to make decisions that will provide benefits for generations to come is truly fulfilling.  Thank you for the opportunity you have given to me.

Respectfully,

Annise Parker
Mayor
