CHANGE: ELECTION 2008

An Envision San Diego Special Presentation

SAN DIEGO

–The political landscape of San Diego has shifted.  For the first time in 24 years, there are more registered Democrats than Republicans in the County.  The 2008 election was an historic one: Barack Obama will be the nation’s first black president, both the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives have a Democratic majority and California voters chose to repeal the rights of same-sex couples to marry one another. 

Join KPBS for a special presentation of Envision San Diego, Change: Election 2008, Thursday, November 20th at 8 p.m., on KPBS channel 11 simulcast on KPBS-HD.  We’ll explore what this election means for the future of the San Diego region and the nation.    

            KPBS reporter Joanne Faryon hosts a post-election discussion you won’t see anywhere else.  Joining her at San Diego’s historic Red Fox Room are Laura Simon, a 102-year-old author and artist who has lived through 19 presidents and the suffrage movements of women in 1920 and blacks in 1963, David Brin, a renowned science-fiction writer and futurist, and Carl Luna, Political Science professor at San Diego’s Mesa College.
