Nathan Fletcher and Bonnie Dumanis

Former Assemblymember Nathan Fletcher and former District Attorney Bonnie Dumanis both picked up key endorsements Monday in the race to represent District 4 on the San Diego County Board of Supervisors.

Supervisor Ron Roberts, who has represented the district for 22 years and is stepping down because of term limits, endorsed Dumanis to succeed him.

“It has been my privilege to represent this district for more than 20 years and it is important to me that my successor have the experience, judgment and commitment to effectively lead on the board. Judge Dumanis is the right person,” said Roberts.

Dumanis, a Republican, served as a superior court judge before being elected to four terms as district attorney for San Diego County

Assemblymember Todd Gloria endorsed Fletcher, saying he can “drive meaningful change in county government.”

“I have known Nathan Fletcher for almost two decades, and I know he is committed to making a positive difference in the lives of others,” said Gloria.

Fletcher, a Democrat, is a Marine Corps combat veteran who twice ran for mayor of San Diego after leaving the Assembly and is now a professor at UC San Diego.

District 4 encompasses most of central San Diego, from the La Jolla coast to East County.
