Mr. Fischer has lived in Frederick City for 24 years with his wife, Karen.
He’s a retired nurse-scientist from the Food and Drug Administration’s Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research where he was involved in the approval of vaccines and biologics.
Robert graduated in 1991 from the Medical University of South Carolina with a Master of Science (MSN). He served for 12 years in the United States navy as a registered nurse at Portsmouth Naval Hospital as well as several other posts.
According to his website (Fischer4frederick.com), Mr. Fischer is running for Alderman because he believes the City of Frederick “needs a representative that will help restore common sense, meet the needs of the people and curb the out-of-control spending that affects our daily lives!”
Robert says he’s a “constitutionalist” and believes “‘We the People’ need to revive federalism and “put a stop to the intrusive power of corrupt politicians.”
He also believes the federal government has usurped too much control that needs to be brought back to the local level. It’s at the local level where those who live in the city know best what they want and need.
He has three platform goals:
- Safe Streets;
- Support Public Safety;
- Curb drug abuse
- Community Outreach
- Restore small business;
- Abolish endless/wasteful spending;
- Cut unemployment rolls by providing jobs;
- Re-imagine the City’s derelict buildings.
- Youth and senior community programs;
- Education not indoctrination;
- Restore the beauty to our downtown area;
- Better outreach with the Neighborhood Advisory Council (NAC)
The Frederick City primary election is September 14, 2021. However, there isn’t a need for a Republican Alderman primary so Robert Fischer and Michelle Shay will not appear on the ballot until the general election on November 2, 2021.
