Pro and Con arguments for and Against the Measure

From the supporters: Caps out-of-control City Manager salary and limits term of office. We pay our City Manager much more than any other city in America. In the last five years, she has received more in raises than all 1,500 San Antonio firefighters combined. Proposition B dictates that City Manager pay is capped at 10 times the lowest-salaried city employee. Right now, that would equate to a reasonable but competitive $290,000 salary. Prop C also sets a term limit of eight years for the position.
From the opponents: Prop. B Would place a cap on the pay for any future City Manager. This could make San Antonio less competitive, in the future, when trying to attract talented city administrators.
