This is not an online petition.
This petition must be filed for the May ballot before Valentine's Day.
State law requires signatures on paper.
Anyone can circulate this petition, but only city of San Antonio voters may sign.
We need signatures from 20,000 registered voters in the city proper of San Antonio.
The San Antonio City Council must need its head examined expecting SAWS ratepayers to shoulder the costs of the $3 BILLION Vista Ridge water pipeline to serve developer private profits. Do they really want us to pay for the most expensive water in Texas to fuel development outside San Antonio – over the Edwards Aquifer -- even in a pandemic?!
Send City Hall a clear message you don't think so.
If passed by San Antonio Voters, the
SAWS Accountability Act will:
Term limit and ratchet back general manager outrageous pay -- $600K per year -- nearly 3 times that of any other public water CEO in the US!
Enforce existing term limits on SAWS leadership. Vista Ridge cheerleader, Board Chairman Berto Guerra, was allowed to stay 2 years past his term.
Return SAWS to its local community mission and stop SAWS lobbying efforts to become water brokers of central Texas.
Secure an audit of Vista Ridge AND audits of any $1 billion or more projects BEFORE contracts are signed.
