Carl DeMaio: A special election can only be called if Nathan Fletcher resigns

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – Tuesday, the San Diego County Board of Supervisors has voted 4-0 to advance a resolution, which will be presented at the board’s May 23 meeting, calling for special election on Aug. 15 to fill the District 4 supervisors’ seat being vacated by Nathan Fletcher in a little less than two weeks.

Nathan Fletcher has about 3.5 years left in his term.

But in order for the special election to happen, Nathan Fletcher has to actually resign on May 15th like he says he will.

Chairman of Reform California, Carl DeMaio, isn’t taking Fletcher’s word at face value, as he says Fletcher is a “liar.” DeMaio also noted that Fletcher’s staff is not packing up any of his belonging in his county office, nor are they out looking for new jobs.

DeMaio also applauded the Board of Supervisors for voting in favor of a special election instead of appointing their preferred candidate.
