Sup. Fletcher says he didn’t close any businesses, COVID-19 restriction did

NORTH PARK (KUSI) – After months of constantly changing government shutdown orders, businesses of all kinds across San Diego County have struggled to make ends meet, many fearing they won’t make it through this most recent lockdown.

San Diego County Supervisor Nathan Fletcher has been leading our local response to the coronavirus pandemic, and has constantly advocated for and supported the policies sent down from the State of California.

Despite numerous opportunities, Supervisor Fletcher never once voted in support of a safe, expedited reopening process from the local level that went against Gavin Newsom’s guidance.

Nine months after the pandemic began, Supervisor Fletcher is now congratulating himself for supporting San Diego small businesses.

Fletcher visited AB Sporting Goods in North Park, which is permanently closing after nearly decades of serving the San Diego community.

Supervisor Fletcher shared a video to Twitter where he says “the restrictions brought on by the pandemic forced the closure,” no him.

As you know, Fletcher has been a strong supporter of the lockdowns and all the restrictions California has implemented amid the pandemic.
