Houston Chronicle political columnist makes a stop by The Insite. Kristen Mack has been at the Houston Chronicle since September 2001. She arrived in Houston the same time The Insite did. She completed her undergraduate at Emory and got the masters at Berkeley. Kristen started out at the Chron as a general assignment reporter but when management saw the excellent job she did covering city hall for 2 years she was promoted to a columnist. That means a full picture and her own segment. Kristen you might as well be on tv with all that. The Miami native has become a staple in the Chronicle and in Houston’s political world. Kristen thanks for stopping by The Insite. Oh, and she likes cigars. The small lady like kind.
