Through his leadership on the Board of the Metropolitan Transit System Board and the Transportation Committee for the San Diego Association of Governments. Supervisor Fletcher is fighting to bring a fast, safe, more reliable and better connected transit system to our region. He knows that if we continue to slow-roll investments in transit options, the costs will be much greater for future generations.
