San Antonio's mayor is not happy with Houston Mayor Annise Parker's "fightin' words" about his city's river walk.
The City of Houston received a national award for the Buffalo Bayou Restoration Project. Here's what Parker had to say when asked why the bayou has not been turned into a "river walk" type development.
"The river walk is a cement ditch," she said. "There is no nice way to say it. Buffalo Bayou is a natural water course."
San Antonio Mayor Julian Castro said there's a little 'river walk envy" behind the comments.
"Mayor Parker is a good mayor and we have a great relationship but it was clear from her comments that Houstonians are a little jealous of the river walk."
He says he invites Parker to lunch on the river walk next time she's in town.
