The People's Reporter
Welcome to The People’s Reporter, a series where we gather questions from readers like you, then answer those questions.
What do you want to know about San Diego? Ask us anything about local government, education, land use, the environment, homelessness, housing, the border, arts and culture or other topics you’ve always wondered about.
Here are some good examples of questions we have investigated: When can police officers pull you over? What is that weird new water tower-looking thing in North Park? What is the status of downtown’s California Theatre?
How it Works
Type your question into our submission form. We’ll choose the best questions, then ask readers to vote for their favorites. A Voice of San Diego reporter will investigate each winning question and report the answer. If your question is selected, you may be interviewed for the story.
Stories in The People’s Reporter series will appear in the Morning Report, on the VOSD website and sometimes on the Voice of San Diego Podcast. If you like, you can also enter your email address and we’ll contact you if the question you voted for gets answered.
Check back often to submit new questions and vote on what The People’s Reporter should cover next.

Mayor Kevin Faulconer has pitched a center where homeless people can be connected with a wide array of services. Just five years ago, the city hailed the opening of Connections Housing, which was also envisioned as a comprehensive center to serve the homeless. What played out with Connections demonstrates that there’s no guarantee Faulconer’s vision will be achieved.
