    Council candidate: Don’t ‘bond out bureaucrats’
    By Kenric Ward  /   February 22, 2017

    Boosters of San Antonio’s proposed $850 million bond call the record debt package “essential” and “transformational” for America’s seventh largest city. They tout the decision-making process as “transparent” and “community-driven.”

    But a city council candidate who served on one of the bond committees calls it something else.

    “It’s bonding out the bureaucrats,” says Patty Gibbons, a candidate to replace retiring District 9 Councilman Joe Krier.

    Sitting on a Roads and Sidewalks committee, Gibbons looked forward to a fair evaluation of projects. She didn’t see it.
