National University lends a sports fan to the Craft Beer Debates

September 10, 2012

Although the purpose of these debates is to make local issues more approachable, there’s no avoiding that whether to build (and publicly pay for) a stadium in downtown is a complex issue. One of the panelists who focuses on making complex issues understandable in his work as President of National University Institute for Policy Research is Erik Bruvold, let’s meet him.

The President of National University Institute for Policy Research…and a rabid sports fan.

Erik is a passionate, active San Diegan with a long involvement in local issues–and some interesting history.  Here are some fun things.  Erik once spent a summer building trails all over National Parks in California. He is a life- long SF Giants fan.  Erik also loves football of all kinds, and still believes that The Holy Roller play was a travesty.
Erik writes and researches some of the most important issues that face the San Diego region. His recent work includes a regional economic development asset map for the greater San Diego-Baja-Imperial County Mega Region, a paper quantifying the cost of homelessness among San Diego’s veterans community, and a project examining the economic impact of ship yard subcontracting in the Barrio Logan community.

Erik will put forth the opposing views and challenge the assumption that a stadium funded with public dollars is a good idea.
