SAN ANTONIO -- They called it a Bond Block Party, but people who showed up at San Pedro Park today got more than information about the upcoming election.
They fired up the grill and served free food, along with more than 20 booths will all kinds of information about city services.
District One representative Roberto Trevino hosted the event.
He said it's important for voters to learn what's at stake with both the city bond process that is underway now - and two important initiatives on the November ballot.
Both SAISD and the Alamo Colleges will be asking voters for support.
Meanwhile, Tax Assessor Collector Albert Uresti said his office just won a state-wide award for their effort to make it easier for senior citizens, the disabled and veterans to take care of their taxes with an easy payment plan.
School bond proponents said it's important to remember that the proposal is last on the ballot. If you want your vote to count, especially if you plan on voting straight ticket, you still have to scroll all the way to the bottom to say yes or no to the school tax initiative.
