Description

Join Voice of San Diego and USD for Politifest 2019.

No greater challenge faces the San Diego region – and California in general – than the cost of living here. Rents are soaring and the concept of buying a home is unfathomable to many residents. But the economy is booming, jobs are being created and babies are being born, both of which drive up the demand for homes. This affects everything. The economy, quality of life, health care, education and the environment. If people can’t afford to live in our cities, it will cripple local economies for decades.

Housing is intricately connected to transportation and San Diego leaders have touched off a major, if not historic debate about the future of transit and highways in the region.

This year, Politifest will be a daylong journey through these discussions and debates. We’ll begin the day with a keynote speaker, followed by a range of sessions led by subject matter experts. Panelists will discuss housing supply, the future of transit, new tax and policy proposals and our conversations with political candidates will focus on these topics.
