Below you’ll find the debate about Proposition A which Café San Diego hosted Oct. 17.
With few elected offices up for grabs this year and a bevy of sometimes confusing ballot measures, one issue stands out as the biggest for San Diego voters:
Should we try to put a commercial airport at Miramar Marine Corps Air Station?
That, essentially, is the question embodied in Proposition A. Tuesday, in a Café San Diego special feature, we offered up a debate between a former Navy pilot who is a prominent supporter of the measure and a retired Navy officer who is helping lead the campaign against it.
John Chalker, an investment manager now, founded Alliance in Support of Airport Progress and has been the point man for years now explaining the need and feasibility of building a new airport. He is arguing in support of Proposition A.
Gerry Nifontoff serves on the Executive Board of the No on Prop A Committee. He retired from the Navy in 1999, after a career that included four tours in Washington DC as an engineer and program manager for several national priority surveillance and combat systems.
