Trump dump

Tweet gets a quick response from city hall

Nathan Fletcher tweets gripe about landfill not accepting credit cards
Nathan Fletcher tweets gripe about landfill not accepting credit cards

Onetime Republican assemblyman Nathan Fletcher, who switched his registration to independent when the local GOP declined to endorse him for San Diego mayor — and later flipped to the Democrats after he went to work for Qualcomm, founded by billionaire Democrat Irwin Jacobs — is taking a tool from the Twitter kit of president-elect Donald Trump. Now being talked of as Qualcomm’s candidate for county supervisor to replace the termed-out Ron Roberts, Fletcher went up on Twitter recently to complain about city disposal practices.

“Dear @CityofSanDiego,” tweeted Fletcher, “2016 & city landfill doesn’t accept credit card? No checks on me, but luckily I had gold bullion + bucket of fish 2 barter” A quick response was tweeted by city hall, where Republican mayor Kevin Faulconer has been, like Fletcher, a major beneficiary of campaign cash and fundraising support from Qualcomm execs. “Working on system upgrade for credit card payments at fee booths,” said the message. “Thx!”

Fletcher, who during his makeover into a Democrat split with wife Mindy Tucker — a former top media aide in the administration of GOP president George W. Bush — also tweets frequently about his current significant other, Democratic assemblywoman Lorena Gonzalez, and she reciprocates. “Watching him speak never gets old,” said one recent post.
