Christine Kehoe Endorses Nathan Fletcher For

4th District Supervisor

 

SAN DIEGO –Senator Christine Kehoe, one of San Diego most highly respected former legislators and a staunch advocate for LGBT equality and environmental justice, today endorsed Nathan Fletcher for County Supervisor.

 

Christine Kehoe said:  “I served with Nathan Fletcher in the legislature.  I have worked with him, watched him grow and strongly believe he will make a great County Supervisor.  We need to elect a Democrat who will move San Diego forward and Nathan Fletcher will do that.”

 

Kehoe’s endorsement adds to fast-growing broad-based support behind Fletcher’s campaign for Supervisor.  In recent weeks Fletcher has been endorsed by top progressive and LGBT leaders including City Hall Watchdog Donna Frye, Councilman Chris Ward, School Boardmember Kevin Beiser, Carlsbad Councilwoman Cori Schumacher and more.

 


Nathan Fletcher said: “It is an honor to earn the support of Christine Kehoe, a true progressive champion whose leadership has made an immeasurable positive impact on San Diego.  I’m running for Supervisor to deliver real results that make a difference in working people’s lives.  I’ll take on the status quo in County Government and work to improve economic security for the least among us, strengthen vital services in underserved communities and ensure clean air and water for all.”
