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.”

Any surprise? Fletcher is the most likely of the candidates to allow the remodeling of Balboa Park designed by Paul's father. But "Dr." Paul Jacobs? Hadn't heard that he was packing a doctorate previously. What he was packing was his father's endorsement to succeed the old man. Just what is that doctorate in? Divinity? Audiology (hearing aids)? Or was that just a typo?

Dr. Paul Jacobs' doctorate is in electrical engineering and computer science from Berkeley. I believe his wife's doctorate is in engineering as well.

March 15, 2012

Berkeley is one of the top five, and most likely the the top public, engineering schools in the nation. If he has a PhD from UCB he is a serious scholar.

March 15, 2012

So, Surfup, if he's such a scholar, why is he totally avaricious, why does his company abuse the H-1b visa program, and why is he endorsing Fletcher?
