Highland Hills Meeting
Reinette King Represented SAPFFA

Reinette King shines - Mayor Disappoints!

"Reinette King is the spokeswoman for the Vote Yes campaign.  Reinette was among the core group of community stakeholders who determined the propositions.

From the start, the SAPFFA San Antonio Professional Firefighters have been forthright in saying this is not our campaign, IT IS THE PEOPLE's.

She along with many others planned to be in attendance tonight to debate the mayor on behalf of the people.

The Mayor chose to cancel the event instead of being engaged with the constituents he serves. "...

Corruption, Fraud, Lies and Bureaucracies

   
The following terms are used in the Revelations about local municipal government and bureaucracies.
We welcome your comments !
Corruption is the exploitation of the many by the politically powerful for the benefit of the few, obscuring financial reality by using bureaucratic power to avoid transparency and accountability.
The elements of a Fraud:
  1. a material representation was made
  2. the representation was false
  3. when the representation was made, the speaker knew it was false or made it recklessly without any knowledge of the truth and as a positive assertion
  4. the speaker made the representation with the intent that the other party should act on it;
  5. the party acted in reliance on the representation
  6. and, the party thereby suffered injury.
Lie
  1. to speak falsely or utter untruth knowingly, as with intent to deceive
  2. to express what is false; convey a false impression
Bureaucracy

“Of all forms of government, those administered by bureaus are about the least satisfactory to an enlightened and progressive people. Being irresponsible, they become autocratic, and being autocratic they resist all development.  Unless bureaucracy is constantly resisted it breaks down representative government and overwhelms democracy.  It is the one element in our institutions that sets up the pretense of having authority over everybody and being responsible to nobody.”

-President Calvin Coolidge, 1926

USAA $ 300,000.00
Valero $ 300,000.00
Gordon Hartman $ 100,000.00
Hartman PAC claims Moody's will downgrade AAA rating
if Props A, B, and C pass


Au contraire: The truth can be found here: Moody's July 24, 2018 report

Factors that could lead to a downgrade
[ Props A, B, C - NOT a factor ! ]
  1. Negative trends in operating performance
  2. Weakened economic profile; contraction in assessed valuation
  3. Growth in unfunded pension liability resulting in budgetary pressure
  4. Increasing debt levels absent corresponding taxable value growth
NO Moody's Alert Letter !
VOTE NO Campaign "the sky is falling" campaign - a LIE !

Christian Archer claims Moody's sent "Alert Letter" a week prior to NNA Meeting !

Moody's Conflict of Interest Click here: Business Insider@ Article
Moody"s Analyst Breaks Silence:
Says Ratings Agency Rotten to Core With Conflicts


Local Fraud and Corruption in Bond Ratings:
  1. Bond rating agencies are paid by the Issuer / the City
  2. Bond Rating Agencies collaborate on reports with the city

Did you know that San Antonio paid the bond rating agencies $ 269,200 in 2017 !
Click here for Proof
and that is JUST The city .. what are ratepayers paying for CPS and SAWS ?
S&P Moody Fitch - CONFLICT OF INTEREST !!

"Investors are also concerned about a possible conflict of interest between the rating agencies and the bond issuers, since the issuers pay the agencies for the service of providing ratings. Because of these and other shortcomings, ratings should not be the only factor investors rely on when assessing the risk of a particular bond investment."

6/14/17    6/07/17    5/24/17


Call to Action: Email your Councilperson
Nirenberg and all city Counclmembers took an oath to uphold the Constitution of the United States.  Our Bill of Rights, in the First Amendment, promises that "Congress shall make no law ... abridging ... the right of the people ... to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."  And yet, Nirenberg has chosen to use his office as a bully pulpit to aggressively target the Firefighters for exercising their First Amendment right, has vowed to enlist other members of council and has engaged "special interests" to "abridge .. the right of the people."

Please email your councilperson and ask that they oppose the Mayors' negative campaign which seeks to oppress an open and fair debate on the 3 Charter Amendments submitted by the SAPFFA.  This is about your right to decide in November.
