Parker's Pension Punt

The Mayor of Houston's downward spiral continues: her third and last term is fast becoming a train wreck.

The latest mistake is abandoning public pension reform that could be economically sustainable and fair to city employees while eliminating Austin from the discussion.

Even the Houston Chronicle has joined the chorus, correctly pointing out that, "...a temporary reduction in contributions just means Houston will have to make up for it later. There's no real long-term savings. Instead we're just playing another round of every politicians' favorite game: kick the can."

So instead of doing the heavy lifting and getting the legislature out of Houston's pensions, Parker takes any deal, so she can say "not on my watch." Thanks for nothing, Mayor.
