Qualcomm CEO Makes Mayoral Endorsement
One of San Diego’s largest employers, Qualcomm CEO Dr. Paul Jacobs, today endorsed Nathan Fletcher’s campaign for mayor, citing Fletcher’s strong commitment to education and economic development as his primary reasons.
“Nathan Fletcher represents the kind of forward-looking leader San Diego needs,” said Dr. Jacobs. “He is committed to improving education so our children can compete in the global economy, [and] has a plan to improve our schools and the ability to get it done.”
Fletcher’s Building The Foundation For Our Future education plan outlines specific goals which he says will put San Diego on the path to having the world’s most innovative school system. He unveiled the plan on Tuesday, March 13, at Qualcomm headquarters.
“Education is an economic and moral issue, the responsibility of every elected official at every level of government, and one I take seriously,” Fletcher said. “My boys will attend public school in San Diego, and I want them and all children in San Diego to have the skills necessary to compete for the jobs of the 21st Century.”
