Good Work By Annise Parker In Getting Rid Of Fire Chief—Picture Of Fire Engine

Houston Fire Chief Phil Boriskie has resigned his post.

(Above—This fire engine on tracks fights fires in railway tunnels in Austria.)

It seems clear enough that new Mayor Annise Parker made him go.

There have been recent incidents of racial and gender-based harassment in the Houston Fire Department.

After these incidents, Chief Boriskie did not handle the response very well.

At core, Chief Boriskie did not seem able to control his people.

Good work by Mayor Parker in bringing about a change of leadership at the Houston Fire Department.
