Houston Elects New Mayor

"Tonight the voters of Houston have opened the doors to history. I acknowledge that. I embrace that. I know what this win means to many of us who thought we could never achieve high office. I know what it means. I understand, because I feel it too. But now, from this moment, let us join as one community." City Comptroller Annise Parker; elected as the first openly gay mayor of Houston, Texas, the largest city in the U.S. to do so; Dec. 13, 2009.
