Reality

posted by Nathan Fletcher

Over the past couple of weeks you received a barrage of negative mail and saw TV advertisements from the far left and far right attacking Nathan Fletcher.

These mailers and negative stunts are not only false, but also a reminder of what type of political climate we live in today.

In fact, Bill Osborne from the UT San Diego said, “DeMaio, trying to pick his own runoff opponent, is relentless in attacking Fletcher.”

And Bob FIlner said his “best weapon is DeMaio. Carl DeMaio is killing Nathan Fletcher in mailboxes.”

Nathan Fletcher Silences DeMaio Camp

Tuesday, May 15, 2012
posted by Nathan Fletcher

“It’s unfortunate the DeMaio campaign doesn’t believe it’s an effective use of Nathan’s time to work with the Democratic Governor, Democratic Speaker, Democratic Pro Tempore and Republican Caucus Chair to protect children from sexual predators. The DeMaio campaign’s attacks only highlight the difference between Nathan who works with both sides to solve problems versus DeMiao who prefers pitchforks, press conferences and protests.”

San Diego County Deputy Sheriff’s Association Endorses Nathan Fletcher

Thursday, May 3, 2012
posted by Nathan Fletcher

The San Diego County Deputy Sheriff’s Association today announced they endorsed Nathan Fletcher for mayor, citing his independent voice and ability to work with broad coalitions to keep the public safe.

“We are proud to endorse Nathan Fletcher for mayor of San Diego,” said DSA President Dave Schaller. “During Nathan’s career he has demonstrated his commitment to keeping the people of San Diego safe. We were particularly impressed with his work on Chelsea’s Law. Many said passing sweeping public safety reform would be impossible, but Nathan proved them wrong. We know he will bring that same energy and drive to the mayor’s office, and we look forward to working with him.”

Response to Bonnie Dumanis’ Desperate Attack

posted by Nathan Fletcher

“It is uncharacteristic for Bonnie to launch desperate attacks. It’s the unfortunate result of a campaign with no message or money. Nathan was rated as 100% pro-choice by Planned Parenthood. Past procedural votes have been misconstrued by some, but Nathan’s position is clear. He is pro-choice.”
-Amy Thoma

“I’ve known Nathan for years. He has always been pro-choice and has always been willing to listen and learn about issues on women’s health.”
-Karen Brailean, Democrat

UT San Diego: Nathan Fletcher in his own words

Sunday, April 29, 2012
posted by Nathan Fletcher

From this morning’s UT San Diego:

“Does this mean compromise is an end in itself? No. There is no compromise when it comes to the public interest or protecting taxpayers. Will we always agree? Of course not. Bold ideas will have opposition. Will everyone get what they want? Not a chance. But that doesn’t mean you can’t work for solutions that preserve our basic principles while taking into account the legitimate interests of others.

I stand up today and state that I will not exclude anyone from joining my campaign based on ideological litmus tests. I welcome support from anyone who shares my vision for our city. That is my only test.”

More Politics as Usual: Legislative Accomplishments

Friday, April 27, 2012
posted by Nathan Fletcher

“The latest attack from our opponents is more politics as usual. This one will backfire too, because we welcome a discussion of Nathan’s remarkable legislative record passing landmark legislation like Chelsea’s Law, tax reform, and regulatory relief. In just three years in office, Nathan Fletcher has been author of more pieces of legislation than Bob Filner has in his twenty years in congress. What’s more, his opponents have missed far more votes than Nathan — DeMaio and Filner together have missed more than four times as many votes.

“This is just the latest sign that the city hall insiders fear Nathan’s independent candidacy and his rise in the polls.”

Congressman Bob Filner: Hypocrite

Thursday, April 26, 2012
posted by Nathan Fletcher

Bob Filner is a hypocrite. He calls out special interests as an issue in this campaign – including Bridgepoint Education – but his Congressional campaign committee has collected over $4 million in special interest contributions from political action committees, including Bridgepoint Education.

San Diegans deserve a mayor who is honest and consistent.

Bob Filner received contributions from Bridgepoint Education. (The Center For Responsive Politics Website, www.opensecrets.org, Accessed 4/25/12)

The Fletcher for Mayor campaign today released a new television ad, “Attacked by the Left and Right.” The ad is the second in a series of ads that explains to voters the clear choice in this election: The far right has a candidate who thrives on playing political games and re-fighting old battles; the far left’s candidate is a career politician with tired ideas, beholden to the same old interest groups; or Nathan Fletcher a tested, trusted, independent voice who will work with all San Diegans to solve problems and move our city forward.

Party over Principles: More Game-Playing from San Diego GOP

Friday, April 13, 2012
posted by Nathan Fletcher

“Local Republican Party chair Tony Krvaric continues to play the political games that helped drive Nathan Fletcher from the party last month. In an email to San Diego Republicans Tony Krvaric distorted the facts and misled voters. It’s shameful. This kind of game playing isn’t new. After Nathan switched the San Diego Republican Party sued Nathan to recover their money after major donors who committed to sponsor the party’s annual Lincoln-Reagan day dinner withdrew sponsorships of $5,000 after the party endorsed Carl DeMaio. This is the kind of behavior that drives people away from the party.”

Fletcher releases Education Plan to provide workforce for the 21st Century

Tuesday, March 13, 2012
posted by Nathan Fletcher

Nathan Fletcher today released a bold yet achievable plan to place San Diego on the forefront of innovation and create the educated, dynamic workforce needed to grow a healthy, robust economy. “Our city cannot achieve its economic potential without an educated workforce,” said Fletcher. “Innovation in education will be the key to everything we do.”

The plan lays out four goals: achieving digital excellence by ending the digital divide in San Diego, promoting workforce development by expanding internships and on-the-job training for students, allowing lower-performing schools another opportunity for success, and encouraging more parental involvement and better inter-government collaboration with city schools.

Nathan Fletcher Releases CPR Plus: Bold Pension Reform from Day 1

Nathan Fletcher today released his “CPR Plus” plan, tough pension reform that goes beyond the provisions of the Comprehensive Pension Reform Initiative and can be implemented on Day 1 of the Fletcher Administration. CPR Plus will save the city millions of dollars annually, end the six-figure pensions for unrepresented city management and ensure the management team in the Fletcher administration leads by example.

Let’s be honest. Let’s be truthful. And let’s be direct.

Yesterday many of you received an anonymously mailed packet of materials.  The sender cowardly hid behind an obscure PO Box and untraceable name, but we all know who was responsible for this—Carl DeMaio.

It is fine to call into question someone’s record – I fought in a war, I can defend my record and look forward to a spirited campaign about our city’s future.

But, let’s not play adolescent games and be cowardly about it.

Let’s be honest.  Let’s be truthful.  And let’s be direct.

DeMaio is entitled to his own opinion, but not his own facts.

Here are the facts:
