Fletcher Scores An Endorsement From California Small Business Association

With the primary election less than seven months away, the candidates to become San Diego's next mayor are racing to rack up endorsements. And in a crowd of four big-name candidates, each endorsement is valued. Today, assemblyman Nathan Fletcher gave word that his campaign added the California Small Business Association to his list of supporters.

Betty Jo Toccoli, the nonprofit's president, cited Fletcher's track record of helping small-business owners and helping to create jobs as the reasons behind backing Fletcher for mayor.

“The Association admires his ability to lead, put the needs of his constituents first and follow through on their behalf. We have no doubt he will bring that same drive, passion, and focus to San Diego City Hall.”

Fletcher touted the endorsement in a press release.

“San Diego has long been the home of small business owners, entrepreneurs and risk-takers — but we must work to ensure that we maintain the kind of competitive environment small businesses depend on. This is important at the state level, and equally important at the municipal level, and I am committed to doing everything possible to support job creation in our city.”

Fletcher is the hero of the Redevelopment sycophants. He is being courted by otherwise socially liberal (little "L") democrats (little "D"), i.e., the local coastal Republican types. What they want is infill and redevelopment, but mainly all that public money, to enable their careers. They imagine and describe themselves as the benefactors of the poor and needy, but, really, they are just people who chose the wrong career in the wrong decade in the wrong town, and they need to pay their bills, on the public dime. Nathan is their guy. Shame. Bob Filner is the only good choice to turn San Diego in a new direction.

Wonder if they'll vote for the Fletch? From VoSD: "Two former top San Diego redevelopment officials each pleaded guilty today to one count of embezzling public funds, admitting to a charge stemming from a clandestine bonus scheme that rocked the agency three years ago."

Please, San Diego, let's not support a man for mayor, Fletcher, who does backroom deals with Sanders and the Redevelopment Agency.

Care to describe that "new direction?" Filner is just an old liberal war horse, who will do little to stop the travel down a path that is unsustainable, that of too-generous public employee pay and far too-generous retirement for that same group. He might cut down on the corporate/developer welfare, but then he might owe that group for their campaign contributions. In terms of the early 90's, he's "stale, pale and male" when something else is needed.

Well who ya gonna vote for? The new direction you outline sounds good! And the Fletch has already established his back-room credentials. Maybe you can at least vote for some one who has yet to earn them?

Filner needs strong people like you on his team.
