Next Wednesday, the Go Vote No campaign will host a tele-town hall to try to knock down support for the fire union's proposed city charter amendments.

Residents can participate via teleconferencing or live stream at or Mayor Ron Nirenberg's Facebook. To get a call shortly before the event's 7 p.m. starts – it's scheduled to run through 8 p.m. – text ABC to 828282.

Residents can put questions to Nirenberg; former HUD Secretary and Mayor Henry Cisneros; developer and philanthropist Gordon Hartman; Jenna Sauceda-Herrera, CEO of the San Antonio Economic Development Foundation; and former Dignowity Hill Neighborhood Association president Brian Dillard. PR expert Trish DeBerry will moderate the town hall.

The three charter amendments are on the November 6 ballot. The changes would: force contract disputes with the San Antonio Professional Firefighters Association into arbitration; cap any future city manager's salary and tenure; and make it easier to challenge ordinances, including spending decisions, by public referendum.

The Go Vote No campaign will begin airing a television ad featuring Nirenberg this Saturday to gin up interest in the tele-town hall.
