Campaign themes

2014

Fisher's website highlighted the following campaign themes:

I believe in Republican principles of less government, local control and accountability. Just as the State doesn’t appreciate the Federal Government telling it how to run, as a community, we should not let the State dictate Kalispell’s fate. Being accountable means not only being responsive to the people you serve, but it also means saying “no” to a fat cat benefit package in order to stand in the shoes of the people you represent, even if saying “no” results in a loss of personal income. This is the test of true leadership: doing the right thing when no one is looking. Results-oriented Republicans create records to be proud of. In Kalispell, we right-sized our local government by creating efficiencies without decreasing levels of service. We also raised our financial reserves from a dangerous low of $244,000 to $1.9 million on a level-funded budget. These are the results this community deserves and should expect from our Legislature. The old system of legislating isn't right for this State or the Republican Party, and is a terrible example for our kids.

We live in a great community, and I have a vested interest in ensuring Kalispell thrives. My kids attend Peterson School, I pay taxes here, and I work here. Like every parent, I worry about the future we are providing for our kids.I know how I can help ensure this community is the place where my kids choose to raise their own kids. If we want a future for our kids in Kalispell, we must ensure the focus of State government is clear and limited to its primary functions: education, public safety, and infrastructure. Our dedication to education must be as sincere as that of our educators; without question, the opportunities I have had are a direct result of the world-class education provided to me by the educators of this State. We must never forget every morning our public safety officers say goodbye to their families knowing that they may not be coming home at night. They make courageous choices selflessly and for our welfare. So when their retirement benefits, or the benefits of their widows are attacked, reason must prevail. Infrastructure is critical to economic opportunity; we keep and create jobs by enhancing our commitment to funding needed infrastructure.[2][3]
