Fletcher, Reichert to Square Off in County Supervisor Runoff

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - Democratic County Supervisor Nathan Fletcher will

advance to a November runoff election in his bid to maintain the District 4

seat, and he will face off against Republican challenger Amy Reichert, who

finished a distant second behind Fletcher in today's election.

The pair easily topped the three-candidate field in the race, far

outdistancing challenger Sidiqua Hooker.

Fletcher, a Democrat, was first elected in 2018 to the District 4 seat.

Fletcher serves as chairman of the Board of Supervisors, as well as

chairman of the San Diego Metropolitan Transit System and vice chairman of the

Regional Task Force on the Homeless. He was endorsed by Gov. Gavin Newsom, San

Diego Mayor Todd Gloria and the San Diego County Democratic Party, among


Reichert is the co-founder of ReOpen San Diego, a community

organization that sought to reopen schools and businesses shuttered to stem the

spread of COVID-19 and railed against vaccine and mask mandates.

On her campaign site, Reichert says Fletcher ``ignored parents and

small business people calling into the Board of Supervisors begging for help''

during the pandemic. Her endorsements included the state and county Republican

parties, El Cajon Mayor Bill Wells, Coronado Mayor Richard Bailey and former

Assemblyman Steve Baldwin.

District 4 covers around 100 square miles, much of which is located in

the central portion of San Diego, as well as parts of East San Diego County.
