Mayor Kevin Faulconer delivers from the Balboa Theatre his second State of the City speech, Jan. 14, 2016.

The first of three forums for San Diego mayoral candidates is scheduled for Tuesday.

Incumbent Kevin Faulconer, lifeguard union chief Ed Harris and ex-legislator Lori Saldana will take part in the forum hosted by Univision/Telemundo on Tuesday at 6 p.m.

The other forums will be held on May 24, hosted by KUSI and the San Diego Union- Tribune, and on June 3, hosted by NBC7/39 and the Voice of San Diego.

Faulconer is finishing the term of Bob Filner, who resigned in August 2013 after nearly 20 women stepped forward to accuse him of sexual harassment. He took office after winning a special election in February 2014.

Harris succeeded Faulconer on the City Council and served eight months in an interim role after pledging not to run for the seat in the 2014 election.

Saldana served in the Assembly from 2004-2010 as a Democrat, but left the party two years ago following disputes with local leaders and a growing antipathy for party politics.
