San Antonio Firefighters Against Streetcar

(San Antonio, TX) -- The San Antonio firefighters union is against the planned VIA streetcar project. The San Antonio Professional Firefighters Association announced yesterday the city should focus on public safety, instead of the streetcar project. Union leaders believe the city will end up paying 400-million dollars in a decade on the project. VIA denies this. The union wants people living in the city to vote on the project before it gets funded. They plan on helping opponents gather signatures on Saturday to put the issue on the ballot.
