CityBeat‘s Dave Rolland has a detailed interview with Nathan Fletcher, “Fletch Lives.” It’s worth reading.

Here is Voice’s reference to it in today’s Morning Report…

In a lengthy interview, Assemblyman Nathan Fletcher – a candidate for mayor – tells CityBeat that last year’s secret late-night redevelopment deal wasn’t secret since he told other legislators about it. “Now, where there’s a disagreement is, someone said, ‘Where was the public input before you did that?’ And I said, ‘When I got elected.’ Because I believe the public elects you to make those types of decisions.”

  1. Self-inflicted wounds are the worst kind. Fletcher is too smart to keep doing these things to himself. At least, let’s hope he is.

  2. Ah, I was wondering when this might show up (and where).

    And for the record, Early 2004 was a dangerous time to be in Iraq, but it was not “…probably the most violent…” as claimed in the print interview and absent from the on-line version.

  3. Agent… Speak in riddles much? Can you please be specific? You were wondering when what might show up? Are you saying that the CityBeat print interview with Fletcher has info that is not online?

  4. Agent of Chaos committed an Alger by saying:
    And for the record, Early 2004 was a dangerous time to be in Iraq, but it was not “…probably the most violent…” as claimed in the print interview and absent from the on-line version.

    Once again, Mr. Google is your friend.

    From the on-line version, here are the supposedly absent words (emphasis mine):

    Nathan Fletcher: “I was there in 2004. It was probably the most violent time of the war. I started in a region just south of Baghdad. That was a volatile region because it was literally split between Sunni and Shia; we had a lot of Sunni-Shia violence. Then we moved up after the Blackwater guys had the incident on the bridge in Fallujah. So, the bulk of my time was spent just on the western side of Fallujah. I had from the Fallujah border over towards Ramadi, right in the heart of the Sunni Triangle. And it was rough. It was a really difficult year.”

    We need better trolls.
