On the feature image, I wrote that Whitmire thought Latinos are stupid. Well he is demonstrating that all those people that endorsed him and believed him are stupid. If those hi-spanics thought he was going to keep his promise to them as to getting the city employees to reflect the community.
Following the very short video of my thoughts on the Latinos that supported Whitmire is a list of his latest appointments or retentions.
David, who worked at Accenture, a business management company, will serve as deputy chief of staff.
David will assist Newport and the mayor in managing staff, overseeing the day-to-day operations of Whitmire’s office, developing policy and communicating with department heads.
David worked with Parker as a special assistant, then as a special assistant to the chief development officer in the Mayor’s Office of Economic Development. He was also a performance analyst for the Mayor’s Office of Innovation and Performance under former Mayor Sylvester Turner.
Brown, Houston’s former city controller, is the new senior advisor for financial integrity. As controller, Brown played a role in helping the city address its pension crisis.
Brown could not seek re-election to the controller’s office, where he served eight years, because the position is term limited.
