Fisher was the Director of Facilities Management at UGA for 31 years, then worked as the Chief of District Services for the Clarke County School District until retiring in 2022. He has served on a number of boards and commissions in the Athens area, including the Piedmont-Athens Hospital Authority, the Athens Community Foundation and the Rotary Club. He is the President of UGARA at the University of Georgia which represents all UGA Retirees.
The ACC Democratic Party considers Fisher to be a Democrat in good standing.
During the 2022 local election, Fisher was endorsed by Steve Middlebrooks, CEO of Heyward Allen Toyota, Republican donor and fundraiser for Athens Clean and Safe PAC. Middlebrooks donated $2,000 to Fisher’s campaign. Fisher was officially “recommended” by Athens Classic, an Athens Clean and Safe PAC partner organization. Fisher was also endorsed by Mayor Kelly Girtz.
Fisher mentions three issues of focus on his website — youth development, homelessness / poverty and crime prevention — but has been short on specifics.
“Building bridges” between the city and UGA and also between progressives and conservatives is also a theme of his campaign.
