Day is a longtime public administration and a California State University trustee.
The purpose of the nine-member group will be to build a new stadium for the San Diego Chargers. Mayor Kevin Faulconer announced the formation of the task force at his “State of the City'' address last month.
“This is an exciting task, and now that we have created the task force it’s time to roll up our sleeves and solve this problem,” Day said.
The committee will have their stadium recommendations for Mayor Kevin Faulconer in early fall, with the goal to get a new stadium proposal in front of voters by 2016.
