City Councilman Carl DeMaio and state Assemblyman Nathan Fletcher are competing to become San Diego’s next mayor and recently cited a few public services they want to help improve.
DeMaio said some branch libraries had lost one-third of their hours in the last decade while Fletcher said 58 percent of Latino students at the San Diego Unified School District aren’t reading at their grade level.
In the latest edition of Fact Check TV, Andrew Donohue and Scott Lewis tackle the two candidates’ claims and explain whether they accurately describe the state of San Diego’s libraries and Latino students.
