This week, Voice of San Diego’s Scott Lewis and Andrew Keatts debated the wisdom of raising the fee San Diego charges commercial developers to pay for affordable housing – is this a gussied-up tax on jobs creation? We also heard an update on the Convention Center expansion, which made moves Thursday with the California Coastal Commission.

The hosts recapped a Fact Check by reporter Lisa Halverstadt, which deemed a claim about police salaries misleading. Hero of the week was architect-developer Ted Smith, and Goat of the Week was the Lincoln Club and its chairman, Bill Lynch.

In the second half of the show, the pair interviewed mayoral candidate Nathan Fletcher, who weighed in on the linkage fee.
