The San Antonio First, Vote YES Campaign released a media advisory on October 29, 2018 in response to a statement released from 5 former San Antonio Mayors. These 5 former mayors, who put their votes together in campaign format to urge citizens to vote no to proposed charter amendments. Looks like Nirenberg didn’t want former Mayor Ivy Taylor backing his gig here. Maybe because he’s refused to ask for the black vote on this issue or maybe she doesn’t agree to back him.

This is a perfect illustration of the problem: City Hall only benefits a handful of people like these former mayors. These propositions are about the hundreds of thousands of taxpayers who are paying higher taxes and utility rates every year. It is hardly news that people in power want to remain in power. These propositions rein in City Hall and end insider backroom deals and they are afraid of that.
