All in Politics & Government
With just four weeks to go until the November election, and in the wake of the most successful Politifest event in the history of Politifests, I wanted to catch up with Nick Stone from SoccerCity to recap the scintillating debate that so many people attended.
Limited time only. Listen to the full audio from the Politifest debate moderated by Scott Lewis between SDSU West, SoccerCity or neither. Politifest Bonus Pod.
This was an amazing episode where we got to hear from some pretty innovative technologists including Ben Katz Chief Architect at ISPolitical.com, ex Googler and UCSD prof Lilly Irani, equity coder Oren Robinson and Vilavanh Sanginthirath from Innovations City about what to expect in the next few years and beyond as the campaign shifts from traditional media to a new digital battleground and how tech such as VR/AR/AI are shaping up as gamechangers for organizers the world over.
Expect the SoccerCity vs SDSU West debate to be one of the more contentious panels, with just 5 weeks to go until the November election, the pressure to persuade voters has never been higher for proponents of the plans to redevelop the Mission Valley stadium site.
The Live Podcast also promises to be well.. lively.
The Community Plan Update sees the area re-zoned for more than 10,000 additional housing units and includes several new roads, 30 acres of new parkland, trails for walking and biking and seeks to connect San Diego Bay to Mission Bay, a new recreation center for future residents and a vibrant entertainment area that incorporates a mix of entertainment, office, retail, housing and park space to be potentially developed with the existing Sports Arena, with a new Sports Arena or even without a Sports Arena.
Several talking points have emerged in the week since Lewis’ story broke, including many that have appeared on this very site in recent weeks and months, but some command more attention than others.
The campaign office will serve as home base for the flood of volunteers who have repeatedly asked how they as individuals can assist in the very real struggle to win in November 6th in order to win on the field in the years to come.
