If you live in San Antonio, three very important propositions that will impact funding for Pre-K 4 SA, Workforce Development and the Advanced Transportation District through allocation of a portion of one percent of the sales and use tax are on the ballot. Determining the pros and cons of the propositions, however, can be a daunting task.
To help sort through the issues, The League of Women Voters of the San Antonio Area has organized an informational forum on the ballot proposals. This virtual forum will be held on Monday, October 5, 2020, at 6:30 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. The event is co-sponsored by Can We Talk? and San Antonio Women’s Hall of Fame.
The program will be moderated by Dr. Francine Romero, Chair of the Department of Public Administration, UTSA. She will be joined by five speakers who will present arguments for or against the propositions.
Arguing in favor of the City of San Antonio Proposition A (Pre-K 4 SA) will be Kate Rogers. Ms. Rogers is a member of the Keep Pre-K4SA Campaign Committee. Speaking against Proposition A is Clayton Perry, City Councilman for District 10.
Dr. Adriana Rocha Garcia, City Councilwoman for District 4, will present arguments supporting the City of San Antonio Proposition B (Workforce Development). City Councilman, Robert Treviño, who represents District 1, will talk about why the proposition should not be approved by the voters.
For the third proposition, Advance Transportation District Proposition A, Marina Alderete Gavito, a member of the VIA Board of Trustees, will present the arguments in favor of Proposition A. Presenting the opposite viewpoint will be Mr. Perry.
Everyone is welcome to attend. Please RSVP at TaxForum.LWVSA@gmail.com by 12:00 p.m., Sunday, October 4, 2020. If you have questions that you would like to submit, please include them with your RSVP.
