Mayor Parker Issues Statement Regarding Her Future Plans

December 7, 2015 -- In response to repeated questions about her future plans, Mayor Annise Parker issued the following statement today.

"I don't have a specific plan yet.  I have been in discussions with Harvard University about a fellowship for the spring semester.  I am under consideration and am evaluating this exciting possibility, but there have been no final decisions.  I hope it works out because it could be a nice transition while I look for something more permanent."

Harvard also released a statement.

“The Institute of Politics at the Harvard Kennedy School is excited that Mayor Parker is one of a small group of distinguished candidates under consideration for a Fellowship at the Institute.   The Institute’s selection process will be completed over the next few weeks.  A formal announcement of the Institute’s Spring 2016 Fellows class will be made in January.”
