The Pacific Beach Democratic Club Candidate Forum for City Council, District 2 was well attended. 44 club members and almost 60 people total came out to hear the candidates. Thanks to everyone who participated! Dr. Jen Campbell, Jordan Beane, Bryan Pease, and Jim Morrison, all passionate Democrats, each answered the questions and presented their case for why they were the one who deserved the club’s endorsement. Most of the discussion centered around affordable housing, STVRs, and their effect on homelessness and density in the beach area. After the Forum, club members engaged in a lively discussion followed by a vote. In the end, Jordan Beane was declared the winner of the PB Democratic Club’s endorsement for City Council, District 2. Congratulations, Jordan!
