Why we support Nathan Fletcher:
We are pleased to announce our endorsement of Nathan Fletcher’s candidacy for Mayor of San Diego. As chief executives and leaders of companies, we know what it takes to run a large organization. The attributes that make the best executives are vision, courage and leadership. In business, these attributes separate the good from the great. Nathan has what it takes to do this job and be a great Mayor.
To move our City forward, our next mayor needs to be a visionary leader who isn’t tied to the gridlock and problems of the past. And our next mayor must have the courage to confront tough problems head-on, bring people together and make difficult decisions.
We believe Nathan Fletcher is the best person to confront these issues. As a Marine, he demonstrated his courage and leadership in difficult situations, making life-and-death decisions during times of extreme adversity. As an Assemblyman, Nathan had the ability to take on legislation many thought were impossible, like passing Chelsea’s Law. Nathan Fletcher’s experience and track record are just what we look for in an executive.
As business leaders, we share Nathan’s can-do and optimistic attitude. Nathan knows and understands what is needed for job growth and economic expansion in today’s competitive and innovative world. Just as we anticipate the continued success of our companies, we expect the same for our city, and we know Nathan can help us get there.
With Nathan Fletcher as our next mayor, we are confident San Diego will have a leader with a demonstrated ability to get things done and move our City towards a brighter future.
