Houston Mayor Annise Parker delivers State of the City address


Houston Mayor Annise Parker says the state of the city is strong, and getting stronger.

In her State of the City address, the mayor said Houston has the nation's hottest economy, and is the job producing capital of America. The mayor also said there's still a lot that needs to be done to improve the city.

Mayor Parker said, "From the roads on which we drive, to the jobs we work, to the neighborhoods in which we live in, to the schools we attend and the parks where our children play -- the best can get better, the best will get better."

Mayor Parker announced two new city programs. "Lift Off Houston" is a business plan competition for entrepreneurs. "Tweet My Job Houston" is a hyper-local app that matches current job postings with qualified candidates.
