Assemblyman Nathan Fletcher is a smooth-talking lawmaker — a talent that came in handy this week when the San Diego Republican persuaded a man not to hang himself on a downtown Sacramento bike bridge over the American River.
The Sacramento Police Department confirmed Thursday that two passers-by intervened Wednesday after spotting the man with one end of a rope tied around his neck and the other around a bikeway commonly known as the "Pipe Bridge" in northern Sacramento near North 18th Street. Their names were not immediately available.
And he's a cute DEMOCRAT!!! Wow! LOL (sarcasm!) And he's literally a nice guy!
From his site:
"Nathan is a member of Nice Guys, a San Diego charitable organization that has provided millions of dollars to worthy causes. Nathan is a champion for the democratic process and has spent time abroad working with philanthropic non-governmental organizations to build and improve democracies in East Timor, Cambodia and Serbia. He is an Ironman Triathlete, a marathon runner, and avid outdoorsman who enjoys surfing, alpine mountaineering and mountain biking. He is a graduate of California Baptist University, where he was a Presidential Merit Scholar and member of the CBU baseball team.
