The Daily Cal 2012 General Election Forum

Watch the live stream of the Daily Californian’s general election forum held in 60 Evans Hall. The forum will include:

-A debate between candidates for Berkeley mayor.
-Arguments for and against Measure S, a ban sitting on Berkeley sidewalks in commercial districts from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m.
-Arguments for and against Measure R, which would alter the process for establishing Berkeley City Council districts. Some say the measure would allow for the election of a student council member.
-Arguments for and against Proposition 30, a state ballot initiative that would temporarily increase both the income tax on wealthy individuals and the state sales tax. The University of California faces a $250 million budget cut and potential 20 percent tuition increase if the initiative fails.
