Mayor-elect Annise Parker is set to meet with Houston Police Chief Harold Hurtt today. Parker made it clear during her mayoral campaign she wanted a new police chief. Last week, Hurtt resigned effective December 30. Parker's spokesperson says the mayor-elect wants to get Hurtt's thoughts on the department and respects his opinion.

Parker's inauguration is set for January 4.
