Flags to be flown at Half-Staff at County Administration Center & Metropolitan Transit System



Nathan Fletcher, Chair of the San Diego County Board of Supervisors and the San Diego Metropolitan Transit System has directed flags be flown at half-staff by both entities in remembrance of the lives lost yesterday from the mass shooting at a transit agency rail yard in San Jose. Chair Fletcher also issued the following statement: 
“Another senseless, preventable shooting has rocked a community and left families grieving, again. Lifting the flags to half-staff is a symbolic gesture we do locally to memorialize and respect the lives lost to violence. After incidents like the one in San Jose or the countless others before it, you feel helpless, you want to do more, and then you realize our federal officials have the authority, but question whether they have the guts to use it. We need their response to this tragedy to be solutions not symbolic. I vow to stand with gun reform leaders in San Diego and across the county to fight for real reform.”
