Oceanside Councilman responds to Sup. Fletchers attempt to divide

Ref: Oceanside Councilman responds to Sup. Fletchers attempt to divide
Honorable Nathan Fletcher,

Your inflammatory rhetoric and false accusations regarding over 1 million Californians seeking to recall Governor Gavin Newsom is completely unacceptable. Your hateful and divisive words come at a time when elected leaders must work to heal our communities and reconcile differences.

I represent a variety of political backgrounds, ethnic groups and world views within my district in Oceanside that support the recall efforts of Governor Newsom. Newsom has failed Californians on many levels to include unaffordable housing, record homelessness, rising crime, failing schools, exploding pension debts and now, a locked down population while prisons are being emptied. Governor Gavin Newsom’s inadequate leadership has ultimately led to the current Covid-19 crisis in our county and state.

Your hateful comments and dangerous smears must stop immediately. It is unbecoming of the office you were elected to serve.

Respectfully,
Christopher Rodriguez

Oceanside City Councilmember
