Mayor wins Round 1 on term limits A city committee deciding which issues to put on the May ballot has decided to give you an opportunity to vote to throw out the current two-term limit and let the Mayor run for a third term. Who voted to include that on the ballot? The Mayor.
Council member Patti Radle: "We understood what the terms and conditions were when we came into office and we should live by them. If not, we will just serve to reinforce the feelings of suspicion and distrust that the community at large is struggling to overcome."

If term limits are increased, should the more generous terms apply to current Council members and the Mayor, who were elected under the two-term rule?

Yes, let 'em run again
No, they knew the rules when they ran

Greetings Brad,
We are trying to promote our Saturn Night Live! Astronomy program this Saturday at San Antonio College’s Planetarium.
It will be free and open to the public so that we can share a little bit of the night sky and show that Saturn can actually be seen from San Antonio.
Attached are some of the flyers (pdf) that we are sending out.
Bryan Tobias
Chairman, San Antonio Astronomical Association
