Prince Frederick - Delegate Mark N. Fisher filed papers with the Maryland Board of Elections on Monday, February 24th, making his bid official for a 2nd term in the Maryland General Assembly.

Fisher is seeking to represent District 27C, a new district created in the States 2011 redistricting process. District 27C includes: North Beach, Chesapeake Beach, part of Huntingtown, Prince Frederick, Port Republic, St. Leonard, and part 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. "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."

Prior to being elected to the Maryland House of Delegates, Mark was, and remains, a successful small business owner. He and his wife Deena have lived in Calvert County for 25 years, where they continue to raise their three children - Sonia, Samuel, and Olivia.

In 2010, Mark Fisher ran as a first-time candidate and defeated a two-term incumbent with 53% of the vote.

Delegate Fisher serves on the Ways & Means Committee, which deals with taxes and education policy. Fisher is a rare voice of common-sense, fiscal responsibility, where he fights tirelessly against higher tax burdens on citizens, and the ever-increasing regulatory burdens the government continues to impose on teachers, homeowners and small businesses.
