Hot debate topics set for Aguirre, Alvarez, Faulconer and Fletcher

Hosted by SDCTA, moderated by 10News

SAN DIEGO - The top four mayoral candidates who want to be the next mayor will debate Wednesday, hosted by the San Diego County Taxpayers Association, and moderated by 10News Anchor Kimberly Hunt.

The debate with Michael Aguirre, David Alvarez, Kevin Faulconer and Nathan Fletcher will be held at the Wyndham San Diego on North Harbor Drive, beginning at 12:20 p.m.

The event will be streamed live on, and the public can join the conversation in real-time on Twitter, using #10TaxDebate.

The debate will feature panelists who were set to focus on education, housing, tourism and development.

Dr. Richard Pattenaude, president of Ashford University; Leslie Kilpatrick, incoming president of the San Diego Association of Realtors; Robert Gleason of Evans Hotels; and a representative to be identified from NAIOP's San Diego chapter were set pose questions to the candidates.

"With city voters already receiving mail ballots, this debate allows voters to hear the candidates talk about several important issues facing our communities," said Felipe Monroig, president and CEO of the SDCTA.

Meanwhile, as Election Day draws closer, some of the ads by political action committees are becoming more negative.

A newly formed PAC was gaining attention for its ad against Nathan Fletcher that featured zombies.

The shortened election cycle is because former Mayor Bob Filner resigned amid a sexual harassment scandal.

Election Day is Tuesday, Nov. 19. Unless there is a clear majority winner, there will later be a runoff election.
