Questions & Answers

Questions from KPBS and the League of Women Voters of San Diego (5)

Should the Community Review Board on Police Practices be given subpoena power when reviewing allegations of officer misconduct? Why or why not?    
Answer from Randy Hahn:
The public absolutely has the right to certain information but the police should have the right to protect certain information especially during investigative process. Let's give the current process a chance and evaluate it before making any changes.
Should the city eliminate minimum parking requirements for new housing near public transit? Why or why not?
Answer from Randy Hahn:

I'm not sure how we can continue expansion and growth without allowing for parking. I also think we need to make sure there are enough accommodations for the elderly and disabled.

Would you support a tax increase that would fund housing and services to the homeless? Why or why not?
Answer from Randy Hahn:

I believe each and every one of us has a responsibility to help solve the homeless crisis. I am sure there will be several proposals and propositions to increase taxes and depending on where and how they are presented I would be in favor of using tax dollars to support solving this crisis.

Do you support increasing housing density in your council district? Why or why not?
Answer from Randy Hahn:

Yes. The trolley expansion in District 2 along Morena Boulevard will provide a great opportunity for us to provide more affordable housing. Easy answer why? We need it.

Do you support either of the plans on the November ballot that would sell the Mission Valley stadium site? Why or why not?
Answer from Randy Hahn:

If it comes down to either San Diego State or Soccer City on the Mission Valley site I am in favor of San Diego State getting the opportunity there. San Diego State is a backbone of San Diego. It deserves the opportunity to expand, continue to provide further education, and contributions to the city.
