“Today is a new day for San Diego County. Nathan Fletcher is going to put the needs of County employees, working families and our community front and center at the Board of Supervisors. We look forward to working with him to combat homelessness and the housing crisis, invest in mental health services and create a County that works for all San Diegans.”
