“Carol would be happy to attend or participate in any debate hosted by the community,” Kim campaign manager Christina Wu told City News Service. “Carol participated in five debates or forums during the primary and we believe the community’s interest in this race will be higher in the general election.”
Cate, a Republican and self-described taxpayer advocate, said he’s looking “forward to participating in a series of forums and debates so that voters have the opportunity to meet the candidates, listen to our ideas and ask us questions.”
District 6 includes Kearny Mesa, Mira Mesa, Clairemont and parts of Rancho Penasquitos.
Cate said the Mira Mesa Town Council, Clairemont Town Council and the Asian Pacific American Coalition have expressed interest in hosting the debates.
His campaign also plans to host 10 smaller “community coffee” forums, he said.
Cate won 47 percent of the vote in the June 3 primary to replace Councilwoman Lorie Zapf, who shifted to District 2. Democrat Kim, an education consultant, was second in the five-person field with 31.5 percent.
“These forums are great opportunities to encourage civic engagement, and our campaign is committed to getting more of the people in this district engaged in this election,” Cate said.
The general election is Nov. 4.
