“This City Bond is the largest of its kind in our history and voters should determine the future of San Antonio’s growth and the city Bond on Election Day,” says Lydia Camarillo, SVREP Vice President.
“San Antonio voters will be paying for the bond, it makes sense they turnout and vote,” added Camarillo.Political pundits anticipate that less than 3% to 6% (36,000 to 18,000) of the San Antonio Electorate will decide the future of this election. The San Antonio Registrar Office reports that there are 601,673 registered voters in the city who are eligible for the May election.
Community leaders will share facts and opinions on the bond through an informative discussion about the city’s rapid development and how the bond will affect the future of San Antonio’s diverse communities. The forum is free, open to the public, and coincides with the first day of early voting. The period of early voting will continue through Tuesday, May 8th.
