The program includes 151 projects designed to improve and enhance existing, as well as acquire or construct, new, local streets, bridges, sidewalks, drainage facilities, parks, athletics facilities, libraries and public health centers." From the City of San Antonio Webite

I'm going with no. I'm tired of getting raped for school taxes when I have no kids.

I think this bond is awesome it cost you nothing! all the city is doing is asking us to borrow the money. People complain about streets,park lands,drainage and so on ...so give the city what it needs to fix it! Now its not the cities fault your paying for a fast growing school district thats yours you choose the neighborhood move out if you don't like it.

I don't believe the stats that the pro-bond side puts out. You know, the gov't could always REFUND us tax $$$, but that will never happen, will it? I am a single taxpayer with no kids who is forced to pay for this and it's not fair. I will vote no on bonds.

I guess I'm the only brave one to post and say I'm voting yes to both the city and school bonds. People complain all the time about the crowded schools, schools that are falling apart, roads that need to be fixed, the lack of parks, drainage, etc. Well these things aren't going to get fixed on their own.

I read a discussion about school taxes on another forum awhile back, and there was one comment that has stuck in my head. And I had never really thought about it this way....for those who don't think they should have to pay school taxes because they don't have children, you need to remember these children are our future politicians, nurses, doctors, business leaders, housing construction and road construction workers, teachers, etc. (You name the profession.) And let's not forget about those who work in that nursing home you may end up in someday. ;-)

Why were you so excited to vote yes on it?

The comment was meant to convey the opposite emotion that others have expressed in this thread. I don\'t think I was really smiling.
