Mayor Gets Standing Ovation At Democratic Convention
Posted Sunday, June 29th 2014 @ 8am  by KTRH News Staff

Houston Mayor Annise Parker was well-received in Dallas this weekend, as she addressed the Texas Democratic Convention. Parker urged Democrats to align behind a core set of values.

"Democrats know education - a good education, is a human right," Parker said.

Parker also added her concern for the country's infrastructure and job wages.

"Democrats are interested in investing in American-based dividends.  Building the roads, and the bridges, and the infrastructure of this country means good jobs at good wages and we are rebuilding America’s future."

She got a standing ovation at the end of her speech. Some democrats see her as a possible future candidate for statewide office.
