"Municipal government is so much about making sure the trash gets picked up and the potholes get filled, that sometimes all that other discussion can be a distraction. ... Obviously, I have paid my dues in the community and have never turned down an opportunity to stand up for the GLBT community, but right now it's about representing all of Houston."

--Annise Parker, who's a lesbian running to be mayor of Houston
