Cate Proposes five debates for 6th District candidates

Chris Cate, candidate for the open San Diego District 6 City Council seat, is challenging his opponents to a series of five debates prior to the June 3, 2014, primary election to be held throughout the district which includes the communities of Clairemont, Mira Mesa, Miramar, Rancho Peñasquitos and Sorrento Valley.

“I look forward to joining the other candidates in a series of community forums and debates so that voters have the opportunity to know my record of fiscal reform. As vice president of the San Diego County Taxpayers Association I have spent years fighting for taxpayers, transparency, and reform,” Cate said. “As a member of the City Council, I want to work with both sides to help Mayor Faulconer finish the fiscal reforms that will generate savings to taxpayers that we can put back into the neighborhoods.”

Five candidates filed paperwork with the San Diego City Clerk prior to the March 6 deadline. All candidates must now wait for the validation of their nominating signatures before they are officially placed on the June 3rd ballot. (Rostra Admin update: All candidates have now been confirmed.)

The Cate campaign will reach out to the respective campaigns.

Cate is a member of numerous community organizations and has been highly active in the Asian Pacific Islander community. He currently serves on the Board of Directors of the Asian Business Association (ABA) and has also been a member of various School Bond Oversight Committees, overseeing hundreds of millions of dollars in taxpayer funded school construction projects. Chris earned his bachelor’s degree in Political Science from the University of San Diego. During his time at USD, Chris and a high school friend started a successful small business in Kearny Mesa that specializes in auto glass replacement and windshield repair.
