Houston Mayor Annise Parker joins us to field your questions on today’s Houston Matters. While she does so from time to time, this will be her first visit of 2015.

Among the developments since her last appearance in November of 2014: The rejection of one Houston Equal Rights Ordinance petition challenge was heard in court, while another collection of signatures was rejected out of hand just this week for including too few signatures. Also, an Uber driver recently charged with sexual assault was operating without a city permit — raising questions about the app-based paid ride service’s procedures. And the Mayor and the City Council continue to wrestle with whether and how to change the City Charter.

We talk with Mayor Parker about these and other developments of recent months, and welcome your questions for Mayor Parker about anything related to the city of Houston.
