    Nathan Fletcher Preps for Mayoral Campaign

    NBC 7 News has learned former state assemblyman Nathan Fletcher filed paperwork with the City Clerk’s office Tuesday as a prerequisite for a mayoral campaign.

    The document dated Aug. 20 is necessary in order to begin raising funds.

    Fletcher made headlines last year during the mayor's race, when he switched from Republican, to Independent.

    Then, in May, he switched political affiliation again to the Democratic Party. 

    Fletcher’s former campaign spokeswoman Amy Thoma told NBC 7 earlier this week that her public affairs firm, Stutzman Public Affairs, will form an independent expenditure committee to support the Republican candidate and oppose the union and Democrat-backed candidates. Thoma said the target of opposition could include Fletcher, her former boss, if he decided to run. 

    She also mentioned former mayoral candidate and Republican Carl DeMaio as someone the IE committee would support.

    Since his last run for mayor, Fletcher has been employed full-time as senior director of corporate development at Qualcomm as well as a professor at UC San Diego.
