Last night KPBS’ Gloria Penner teamed up with me to moderate a forum for the mayoral candidates at the packed Old Globe. The focus was nonprofit and philanthropic issues.

All four major candidates were there and all four were touting their support for the sector. They each pledged, for instance, that the arts community could expect the same level of support from the city or more under their leadership.

The forum was put on by Nonprofit Management Solutions, the San Diego Association of Nonprofits, San Diego Grantmakers, San Diego Regional Arts and Culture Coalition, the San Diego River Park Foundation and San Diego River Coalition, The Old Globe and the University of San Diego’s Institute for Nonprofit Education and Research.
