Nathan Fletcher, a candidate to represent District 4 on the San Diego County Board of Supervisors, is pictured in this undated photo.

Most of the members of the San Diego County Board of Supervisors have been in office for more than 20 years. That will change after this year’s election.

New supervisors will be elected in Districts 4 and 5 because of the addition of term limits for the board positions.

District 4 covers most of the central city of San Diego from La Jolla to downtown, from Ocean Beach to Encanto. It is currently represented by termed-out Supervisor Ron Roberts.

Former California Assemblyman Nathan Fletcher is one of five candidates in the District 4 race. He’s a Marine combat veteran and teaches political science courses at UC San Diego. He is a Democrat. The supervisors positions are officially non-partisan, but right now all five supervisors on the board are Republican.
