'No duh!' Mayor Annise Parker zings reporter during Q&A session

HOUSTON (KTRK) -- Mayor Annise Parker zinged a reporter during a question and answer session after a City Council meeting Wednesday.

The mayor was talking about the backlog of fixing potholes. Parker said the city re-prioritized money from its last budget and the council voted to put $10 million more toward short-term pothole fixes. Seconds later, a Houston reporter asked a question about a $10 million shortfall for fixing potholes.

Mayor Parker then responded, "No duh. That's what I just said."

Parker went on to say there's only so much money to spend with the city budget. She also said the city is spending twice as much on street and drainage projects than when she first took office thanks to the Rebuild Houston program.
