San Luis Obispo Mayor Heidi Harmon and challenger T. Keith Gurnee faced off in a debate hosted by Cal Poly Associated Students, Inc (ASI) Oct. 18 in the Julian A. McPhee University Union.

Students had the opportunity to interact with mayoral and city council candidates during the first 20 minutes of the event, followed by a mayoral debate on issues affecting Cal Poly students.

“ASI Student Government is very focused on creating a culture of civic engagement on Cal Poly’s campus,” ASI President Jasmin Fashami said. “Beyond registration, we must educate our campus and engage with local officials regarding student-focused issues in order to empower our voices and initiate meaningful change.”
