One thought on “San Antonio Credit Rating: AAA for Sixth Straight Year

  1. This might sound great on the surface, but actually, there are so many needs in this city that are unmet because money is put in reserve to maintain that AAA bond rating. Austin also has a AAA bond rating. Dallas, Forth Worth, and Houston have Aa1 and Aa2 ratings, but they don’t seem to be doing too badly. Our city government might pay lower interest rates on city projects, but how much interest do some of our lowest paid city employees pay on their debt because they aren’t making a living wage? For so much of San Antonio’s history, city decision makers have frequently done what is politically popular in the short-term, rather than operating with a long-term vision of investing in this city.
