San Diego County Democratic Party Endorses Nathan Fletcher For County Supervisor
Democrats unite behind Fletcher to bring change to GOP dominated Board of Supervisors 

SAN DIEGO – On Tuesday night, the San Diego County Democratic Party voted overwhelmingly to endorse Nathan Fletcher for San Diego County Supervisor.

Nathan Fletcher said: “I am honored to be the choice of San Diego Democrats to bring long overdue change to the County Board of Supervisors.  For too long County Government has failed to address San Diego neighborhoods’ urgent needs and as County Supervisor I’ll fight to deliver real action to tackle the homeless crisis, protect our most vulnerable residents and strengthen economic security in all our communities.”

Nathan Fletcher's endorsement was approved with over 90% of votes cast by grassroots Democratic Party delegates, well over the 60% threshold for endorsement.  An early, nearly-unanimous endorsement from the Democratic Party underscores both Fletcher’s tremendous base of support from throughout the community and the Democrats’ unity and commitment to bring change to the Board of Supervisors, which has been controlled by Republicans for decades. 

Jessica Hayes, Chairwoman of the San Diego County Democratic Party said: “The Democratic Party is firmly united behind Nathan Fletcher because he’s the only candidate for County Supervisor ready to take on the status quo and deliver for the people of San Diego.  From serving in the Marines to passing landmark legislation in the State Assembly to protect homeowners and make college more affordable, Nathan Fletcher has always taken on the tough fights to make a difference in the lives of ordinary working people.  We will do everything we can to elect Nathan Fletcher and bring Democratic change to the Board of Supervisors.”
