Delegate Mark N. Fisher has filed to run for a second term in the Maryland General Assembly. The Republican, who resides in Owings with his family, submitted his paperwork to the Maryland Board of Elections in Annapolis Feb. 24.
Currently representing District 27B, Fisher is seeking election as the delegate for District 27 C, which includes North Beach, Chesapeake Beach, a section of Huntingtown, Prince Frederick, Port Republic, St. Leonard and part of the Lusby subdivision of White Sands.
“Nearly four years ago, the great people of Calvert County elected me to fight against the government’s outrageous spending habits, job-killing regulations, and anti-economic growth policies,” said Fisher in a press release from his campaign office. “Even as a Republican in a legislature overwhelmingly controlled by Democrats, I have done just that. If given an opportunity to serve a second term, I will continue to be a steady voice for Calvert County residents who want lower taxes, less spending, and policies that foster economic opportunity in order to create the jobs Maryland workers need.”
Fisher, who is in the telecommunications business, serves on the House Ways and Means Committee in Annapolis.
Since his election, Fisher has served on the Tri-County Council’s Executive Board.
The George Washington University graduate and Baltimore native is also the founder of The Gray’s Field Foundation, an effort that preserved a historic African-American baseball field in Owings.
His lone opponent in the District 27C race is Democrat and former delegate Sue Kullen of Port Republic. Fisher defeated Kullen in the 2010 General Election. The election was Fisher’s first foray into politics.
