The Street Car petition drive was successful in submitting over 27,000 signatures to the San Antonio City Clerk on July 8. Once the clerk verifies the signatures, the city charter amendment to allow a vote on street cars should appear on the November ballot. The toll road campaign did not have the same resources to successfully reach our goal, but a win on stopping the street car will mean more money for critical road projects. So it’s a big win for taxpayers all the way around should the vote to amend the city charter and eventual vote to defeat the street car plan prevail.
Thank you to the grassroots and dozens of volunteers who helped both campaigns. It’s a major milestone that’s already gotten the attention of four city council members and thousands of residents in San Antonio. Great job to all involved, especially the San Antonio Firefighters Association.
