State Senate Debate District Three - Calendar

State Senate debate Tuesday night at UC Hastings College.This was the third State Senate Debate that I have attended.

This debate was definitely different.

Serious questions were asked by Ben Allen, the student Regent of the UC Board of Regents along with individuals from active organizations within Hastings.
The issues discussed were education, homelessness and the recently setup community court, race relations in America, the two housing items on the ballot in June, Prop 13 rollback and the Iraq War and environmental issues.

What was different was that Carole Migden and Mark Leno did not snipe at each other, in fact they both said that the other had helped on particular issues.
Without the
pickering the debate flowed much better and the audience did not tense up and get upset with the back and forth.

The press was there, probably because of Migden's $350,000 campaign fine. Carole Migden said it was campaign reporting errors done by volunteers and the campaign took steps to correct the errors.

Once again the debate shows that Migden and Leno are extremely smart and articulate. Joe Nation sometimes was not up to speed on San Francisco issues because he just got in the race. However, Nation is extremely qualified in regards to environmental issues and would be a national leader on climate change .

Nation's literature shows a picture of the Marin headlands and the Golden Gate Bridge looking over to San Francisco.

If nothing else, by Joe Nation getting in the race (and according to one poll in first place) both Migden and Leno have had to polish their speeches and focus on real issues.
