Fletcher’s Family of Friends
Recently, Nathan Fletcher raised eyebrows for accepting a financial donation from the minor daughter of Lorena Gonzalez, the local labor union boss. Nathan Fletcher’s continued move to the left appears to mirror his growing support from the Gonzalez family as a whole. The most recent financial disclosures show Marco Gonzalez, Lorena’s brother, donating to Fletcher’s Mayoral campaign.
Marco Gonzalez is a well known area attorney specializing in environmental law. He’s most famous for suing the City of San Diego to stop fireworks shows during the Fourth of July and other celebrations. Gonzalez is requesting the city pay him 756K in legal fees for his suit.
These lawsuits, if successful, would effectively stop neighborhoods like La Jolla, Mira Mesa and others from having fireworks displays because of the costly and time consuming permit approvals he would require.
