Thursday, April 18, 2013, 9:00 am - 10:30 am
The President's Dining

Fletcher served ten years in the U.S. Marine Corps and has made political headlines twice in the last couple of years. First, he worked across party lines as the author and main proponent of California’s Chelsea’s Law, which included a one-strike penalty for violent sexual offenders. A year later, he threw his hat in the ring as a candidate for San Diego mayor. The national headlines came when he very publicly left his political party to run as an independent (see the article at RealClearPolitics and his powerful video on YouTube).


At this private, intimate gathering, Fletcher will be speaking informally to students about his decision to leave the party, life as a public servant and policymaker, and his personal story of his journey into and through politics.


Thursday, April 18, from 9:00-10:30 a.m. in the President's Dining Room, in the Nicholson Commons building. Dress is business casual and space is limited, so please RSVP to
