From the Reporter
The Facts
Mayoral candidate Nathan Fletcher spent a decade as a Marine reservist including overseas tours in Iraq and eastern Africa.
The Connection
As Fletcher seeks to take the quick leap from sophomore assemblyman to the Mayor’s Office, he’s intertwined his military and political identities to the point they’ve become indistinguishable.
Why It Matters
Fletcher’s time in the Marines allowed him to hone the same conciliatory tone he’s used in politics. Close relationships define both of his careers.
