Fans and foes of Nathan Fletcher’s bid for mayor want you to know about his voting record on taxes. Just check your mailbox for proof.

In recent campaign mailers and newspaper editorials, they’ve claimed Fletcher voted to raise taxes by $1 billion and cut taxes by $1 billion in the state Assembly. But there’s a lot more to this story than just numbers.

In this edition of Fact Check TV, Andrew Donohue and Scott Lewis examine the dueling claims about Fletcher’s votes on taxes and whether they are true or false.
