SAN ANTONIO - Hundreds of thousands of dollars were spent campaigning for the Pre-K for SA proposal, and it all paid off.
The proposal passed Tuesday night, receiving nearly 54% of the votes.
Supporters gathered Tuesday night at the La Fonda restaurant on Main Street. Current city council members and past mayors stood at Mayor Julian Castro's side as he congratulated everyone on their efforts.
“This is great because it ensures from the very beginning that thousands of children across the city have a better chance at school and at life,” Mayor Castro told us.
The Pre-K for SA program will start in July 2013 and will run for eight years.
