In 2012 Fletcher campaigned to be mayor of San Diego and became an independent not long after the Republican Party endorsed Carl DeMaio. Democrat Bob Filner won the mayoral election.

In a message posted to his Facebook page, Fletcher said he doesn't know if he will run for office again and is enjoying working at Qualcomm and UCSD. Fletcher credited conversations with a fellow Marine he served with in Iraq and a politician in Myanmar for helping him make the decision.
