Great Stadium Debate a Success, what’s next?

September 13, 2012

For those who missed the Great Stadium Debate, not to worry a video of the event will be posted on this site as soon as it’s done.  A great time was had by all and most importantly the audience and the panelists had an opportunity to exchange in a more relaxed forum than your typical debate.

As mentioned last night, the plan is to follow up with similar debates (provided we find sponsors to help underwrite) on topics ranging from education to water or infrastructure equity and planning. We may even tackle an actual beer topic – mass production versus craft brewing (yes, I’m biased, but the debate could be interesting).  We’ll follow the same format of taking a controversial position, having some fun, and providing a forum for people to walk away with information they can share with their friends.

The better informed we are as citizens of the region the better our decisions will be–and we’ll be able to have meaningful participation in city and county decisions.  And with San Diego becoming one of the premier international destinations for craft beer, this is a great way to open public issues to more people. 

Thanks for dropping by, please feel free to read some of the background posts! Cheers.

  1. Excellent event, I look forward to future ones! My suggestion is just to try to focus on locally important issues like this one. This could really be a great venue for San Diego to try to keep growing its public discourse and there’s plenty to talk about, and local issues mean there are people in the room who can do something about what is being discussed.
