On behalf of the entire news team at 10News, welcome to our NextGenPolitics website.
The Internet creates opportunities to expand news coverage well beyond what appears on our newscasts. In covering elections, the web dramatically increases what we can show voters about candidates and ballot measures. That's what this website is all about.
10News offered candidates for many local offices the opportunity to address voters directly with a free, five-minute video statement. In addition, we asked them to answer 10 important questions so you can see where they stand on key issues. We've also provided other useful information as well as links to other election websites so can learn even more about them.
We feel it is in the public interest to create an environment where candidates can reach large numbers of voters in a meaningful format at no cost and where voters can see the candidates and learn more about them and other important election contests in an easy to use, engaging format.
10News hopes you and other San Diego area voters find this online voter guide to be a valuable election resource. Thank you.
Sean Kennedy Acting News Director 10News/KGTV, San Diego
