Will Fisher For Congress
Currently I am a proud husband, father, Texan Democrat, and practicing business lawyer. Married for 12 years, my wife and I are proud parents of two smart and energetic girls who attend elementary school in Flower Mound. As a father I want to pass down the values that I learned as a child: to love people wherever they are, to yearn for justice, mercy, and equality, and to value the inherent dignity of the human soul.
Like so many others, I woke up on November 9th in shock from the direction our country had taken, unsure of what a future America looks like for my kids and future generations. The direction we are headed does not reflect our shared American values, and I believe our current congressman, Michael Burgess, is contributing to this moral disaster.
I’m proud to have put down roots and settled my family in Texas. I came for the economic opportunities, but soon learned that what made Texas special was its people. Good people with big hearts. I believe in fairness, justice under the law, and equality of opportunity, and I have a soft heart for those disadvantaged in our society. I believe we’re at our best as Americans when we’re diverse, and that ensuring minority groups have every opportunity and legal protection as the majority makes us a stronger, more vibrant nation. I believe that love is love, regardless of gender. Most of all, I believe that we’ll never be fully free so long as we allow inequality and injustice to persist. I believe we all deserve better than the representation our current leaders are providing, and by working together we can elect representatives who reflect our shared values.
These are the reasons I’m running for Congress! My team and I are fired up, and like you, we’re working hard so the entire district can bid farewell to Burgess. I invite you join me in this effort. Let us rise up and take District 26 together. Let’s teach Michael Burgess how to say goodbye.
As a proud, modern Democrat, Will is committed to fighting for our shared values. He pledges to:
•fight for single-payer, universal healthcare,
•advocate for all Americans’ civil rights,
•defend women’s rights,
•champion the rights of our LGBTQ loved ones,
•protect the rights of Americans with disabilities,
•combat voter suppression, and
•push for a true public works infrastructure program to put Americans in high-paying, middle-class jobs.
