The Money Tree Pushing for One SA Bond Election

So, San Antonio, who is investing and how much money are they investing to get you to vote "YES" on city 2017 bond election? Businesses, groups, and individuals are spending a lot of capital for your “YES” vote.

Early voting has started, and on May 6th, the city of San Antonio wants voters to approve the largest bond proposal in the city's history. The city wants to borrow $850 million for improvements and upkeep of streets, sidewalks, parks, buildings and more.


There is a fairly large list of contributors pushing the bond using the campaign slogan "One SA" or in simple terms, the political action committee set up to push the bond. Roughly $680,755 has been contributed to the campaign. Much of the money is coming from developers, construction companies, businesses, politicians, and engineering firms...some who want a share of the action from all the projects.
