The raucous debate over whether voters should approve the sales-tax-and-reform ballot measure Proposition D got off to an early start, and it hasn’t stopped.

Now, that debate is going on the road.

We’re hosting what should be a lively debate between Councilman Todd Gloria (pro-Prop. D) and Councilman Kevin Faulconer (anti-Prop. D).

Date: Thursday, September 30th

Time: 5 p.m. to 6 p.m.

Where: The Westin Gaslamp Quarter located at Horton Plaza (Directions)

It’s free and open to the public. Please note the debate will begin promptly at 5 p.m.

Some background:

For the last 10 years, the city of San Diego has faced budget deficits that have cut fire engines and slashed library and recreation center hours.

Proposition D would allow the city to increase the sales tax by a half-cent if it completes 10 financial reforms. Come find out what two sides of the debate have to say about this major decision.

I’ll be moderating the debate, so e-mail me in advance with questions you would like presented to the debaters. You will also be able to submit questions at the debate.
