We’ve got a different kind of mayoral debate coming up.

All four of San Diego’s major candidates — Mike Aguirre, David Alvarez, Kevin Faulconer and Nathan Fletcher — will sit down with Voice of San Diego’s Scott Lewis inside the Birch North Park Theatre (please note venue change) Nov. 5 at 6:00 p.m. We want firm answers on their policy plans and getting to get to know the men behind the podiums.

With that in mind, we’re asking for your help. What would you ask the candidates? We want the questions you aren’t going to hear anywhere else. These can be personal icebreakers or political ballbusters — we want to throw the contenders off their campaign game.

Leave your questions at The Plaza. We’ll collect those and highlight our favorites over the coming weeks leading up to Nov. 5, and Scott will use a few on the big night.

We’d also really love to hear from you. That’s why we’re extending this to Instagram’s handy video service. Just record yourself asking your question, and include the hashtag #noBSmayor in the caption. We’ll search for that hashtag and include your video in our roundup posts. (For added insurance that we see your submission, you can mention us in your post, too – @voiceofsandiego.)

Don’t want to talk on camera? Snap a hipster-filtered photo of your question written out if you so desire. Just don’t forget #noBSmayor.

Check out Scott’s submission below, and follow suit, San Diego.
