It’s been a long 10 weeks since San Diego Mayor Bob Filner resigned. Four main candidates have emerged in the Nov. 19 special election to replace him. In the week before the big day, we’ll tell you what you need to know about them. Up first is former Assemblyman Nathan Fletcher.
Seen and Heard
Here’s a video introduction to Fletcher:
And Fletcher’s appearance on VOSD Radio:
The Pitch to Voters
Fletcher’s a dealmaker who can best mix San Diego’s penchant for electing moderate mayors with its growing progressive influence.
Three Big Issues
Fletcher argues his history shows he’s the best one to actually get stuff accomplished as mayor. He points to high-profile legislation he wrote, such as Chelsea’s Law, and big deals he made with Govs. Arnold Schwarzenegger and Jerry Brown.
We Stand Up for You. Will You Stand Up for Us?
I will instruct the chief of police to issue CCW's to the law abiding citizens of the City of San Diego as provided by law and the strong mayor form of government. I am a pro-life Republican. I believe marriage is between one man and one women. I will fight for lower tax rates and less government regulation (e.i. limited government). I will fight for "Christmas" on the Prado.
