It was Never About You, It was About Your Ability to Get Them to the Top
Voters have a responsibility to hold their elected officials accountable and to ensure that they are working for the betterment of our communities. Unfortunately, it seems that many Democrat officials, like Supervisor Nathan Fletcher, are more concerned with advancing their own political careers than with serving their constituents.
Fletcher, who recently won office as county supervisor and is now running for state senate, has a history of leaving his constituents behind. During his time as supervisor, he implemented and enforced the San Diego shutdown during the COVID-19 pandemic, leaving many businesses and individuals struggling to survive. This is just one example of his disregard for the well-being of the people he was elected to serve.
Now, as he runs for state senate, it’s clear that Fletcher’s political ambition knows no bounds. He has no problem leaving his constituents in Supervisor District 4 behind just months after winning the election. Can we trust him to represent the people of the 39th Senate District when he has already shown a willingness to put his own interests above theirs?
This is not just an issue with Fletcher. It seems that many Democratic officials are more concerned with advancing their own careers than with serving their constituents. This is evident in the case of former California labor chief Julie Su, whose nomination as U.S. Secretary of Labor is being contested over her support of policies that have hurt small businesses and workers.
Citizens cannot let this kind of behavior go unchecked. Everyone must hold their elected officials accountable and demand that they work for us, not for their own personal gain. Voters must come together to stop politicians like Fletcher from leaving their constituents behind and to elect candidates who truly represent the values of their communities.
It’s time for a change in our political system. It’s time for elected officials who are truly committed to serving their constituents and improving their communities. Let’s demand more from our Democrat leaders and hold them to a higher standard. Their communities deserve nothing less.
