“Nathan Fletcher’s candidacy is the best opportunity to meaningfully advance support for our region’s children and seniors and to drive greater county participation in our homeless and housing crisis,” said Passons, an attorney and community activist.
Passons received 19 percent of the vote in the primary. He joins Ken Malbrough, who placed fifth, in endorsing Fletcher, who led with 29 percent and now faces former District Attorney Bonnie Dumanis, a Republican, in November.
“While Omar and I were opponents in the primary, we are both united by the same drive to build a county government that serves our neighborhoods, focuses on ensuring every child has a path to success and helps lift up struggling working families,” Fletcher said.
Fletcher, a former Marine and now UC San Diego professor, served as a state Assemblyman, authoring Chelsea’s Law.
