Last Wednesday at University of San Diego’s Shiley Theater an estimated 400 members of the community joined SDLRLA and its partnering organizations to hear from the top four polling candidates for Mayor of San Diego: David Alvarez, Mike Aguirre, Kevin Faulconer and Nathan Fletcher.

Hailed as “beautifully executed from the registration table to the close of the Forum” and “the most educational debate so far,” SDLRLA was thrilled to have the event co-moderated by Joanne Faryon and Elsa Sevilla, who were a power team in keeping the candidates on topic and interacting with questioners from the audience.

The Forum was covered by local and bi-national media coverage. You can see the U-T story here and photos of the VIP Reception and Forum are also available on our facebook page.

Having heard from the candidates, we hope that we will see all of our attendees at the polls for the upcoming special election!

Thank you to USD School of Law for hosting the event, to our partnering organizations for helping to spread the word, to our sponsors, to our attendees and  to the candidates for attending. Extra kudos to Political Affairs Chair and SDLRLA Board Member Rodrigo Guevara for his hard work in spearheading the Forum.
