(Sept. 20, 2018) -- UTSA and the San Antonio Express-News will jointly host a town hall meeting this evening to discuss the charter amendments that will be on the Nov. 6 general election ballot. The event, which is free and open to the public, is scheduled at 7 p.m., Thursday, Sept. 20 in the Buena Vista Street Building Theater (BVB 1.326) at the UTSA Downtown Campus.
Earlier this year, the San Antonio Professional Firefighters Association submitted the petitions calling for the three amendments. If passed by voters, the amendments will:
A political action committee (PAC) tried to block the amendments from appearing on the Nov. ballot. The 4th Court of Appeals denied the PAC’s request, paving the way for the election to take place.
During the forum, panelists will discuss the amendments and the impact on the City of San Antonio and its firefighters.
Francine Romero, UTSA associate professor and associate dean of the College of Public Policy, will moderate the event.
Free event parking will be available in unmarked spaces of lot D-3, beneath IH-35.
Guests are encouraged to submit questions to the panel when they arrive at UTSA, prior to the event. A live stream of the town hall meeting will also be available on ksat.com and the KSAT 12 Facebook page.
