Bill Fisher elected to Ward 4 city council seat in special election

Posted

William “Bill” Fisher, a Registered Nurse who has lived in Golden for 20 years, is going back to the Golden city council to represent Ward 4, just as he did from 2008 to 2014.

Fisher received more than double the votes of his opponent, Stacy Fowler, in the mail-in election, which was completed on April 28. Fisher will fill the seat previously held by Laura Weinberg, who was elected Golden's new mayor last year. Ward 4 encompasses the portion of central Golden west of Washington Avenue.

In a virtual forum held on April 7, Fisher touted his experience on the council and ability to immediately step into helping to make difficult decisions at a time when the council will be facing many of them as the city recovers from the impact of COVID-19.

On his campaign website, Fisher lists enhancing Golden's vibrant downtown, minimizing impacts of development and promoting financial security as being among his priorities. He also notes that he supports “adding teeth to the town's 1% growth ordinance and other zoning restrictions to protect our heritage” and is “against the sale of the Astor House to the highest bidder.”

“Thank you for supporting and trusting my candidacy during this special election,” Fisher wrote in a message on his website about the results. “I am excited to get to work — Golden is worth it!”
