More Politics As Usual From Nathan Fletcher
Latest Fletcher Political Game: Rich Downtown Insiders Handpick Their Choice for Mayor
Today State Assemblyman Nathan Fletcher’s masterful gamesmanship continued as he attempted to use his millionaire campaign backers to make the case for his independence. Ironically, the wealthy downtown insiders featured at the press conference are the same people who have contributed tens of thousands of dollars to his Super PAC.
“I think the question is not why are a bunch of millionaire backers joining their hand-picked Mayoral candidate in an election year ploy. Didn’t we all see that coming? But will Democrat voters be fooled by a politician who just last month proudly said he ‘voted for an all-cuts budget, not one that reduced welfare but one that eliminated it,’” said DeMaio.
Instead of creating front groups to back his campaign, Nathan Fletcher should focus on doing the job he was elected to do and talking about real solutions for San Diego.
Carl DeMaio formed broad coalitions of Democrats, Republicans and Independents to qualify Propositions A & B – Fair and Open Competition for City Contracting, and Comprehensive Pension Reform. He has a demonstrated track record of bringing San Diegans together to uncover the dysfunction at City Hall and enact real reforms to protect taxpayers.
