“The current members of the Board of Supervisors prioritize hoarding cash reserves and voting themselves a raise over investing in San Diego families and in our communities. For this district, we can’t afford to elect a rubber stamp vote for the status quo. We need a strong voice and a champion in challenging the rest of the Board to finally invest in supporting county employees and providing the services that our seniors, our children and our vulnerable neighbors need. Nathan Fletcher has the experience, commitment and values to be that strong voice and we are proud to endorse him.” – David Garcias, President, SEIU 221
