Video: Measure A Debate Changes Minds at Politifest
Measure A would raise the county’s sales tax and use the money to invest in freeways, transit and open space preservation.
Moderated by Voice of San Diego’s Andrew Keatts, City Councilman Todd Gloria and County Supervisor Ron Roberts argued in support of the measure and Nicole Capretz, executive director of Climate Action Campaign, Oceanside’s Deputy Mayor Chuck Lowery and Tommy Hough, president of the San Diego County Democrats for Environmental Action, argued against it.
Before and after the Measure A debate, Keatts took an informal poll of the audience, and lots of audience members actually changed their minds with an overwhelming shift to “yes” by the end of the conversation.
