Statement: Response to amended complaint filed 2/28/19
Supervisor Fletcher is unable to comment on the amended complaint as it represents ongoing litigation and is directing all questions about the complaint to the county’s legal counsel. He does offer the following statement about the child welfare system overall:
I believe significant and structural change in our child welfare system is needed. As a County, we must be internally honest about the need for change and externally transparent about how we plan to make it a reality. I pledge to be actively engaged in an effort to ensure we are doing everything possible to protect children.
Supervisor, District 4
County of San Diego
