Politifest 2016 Building a better region together, one story at a time

One of the biggest crowds at Politifest was at the debate over Measure C, the Chargers’ plan to build a convadium in East Village.

City Councilman Chris Cate, architect Rob Quigley and former San Diego Economic Development Corp. CEO Julie Meier-Wright argued against the measure; while Chargers adviser Marcela Escobar-Eck, the San Diego Stadium Coalition’s Jason Riggs and Save Our Bolts’ Thomas Powell made a case for it.
