San Diego County Supervisor Dave Roberts and his challenger Kristin Gaspar faced off at a forum Monday night in Escondido.

Roberts is the only Democrat on the San Diego County Board of Supervisors. In 2014, Gaspar, a Republican, became the first elected mayor of the city of Encinitas.

About 630,000 residents live in District 3, which stretches from Del Mar up the coast to Encinitas and includes Mira Mesa, Rancho Bernardo and Escondido.

Before the forum, each candidate spoke with KPBS North County reporter Alison St John about the key issues in the race.
