My name is Jordan Fisher. I’m both one of America’s most recent veterans, having recently completed my tour of duty in the United States Marine Corps, and the campaign manager for “The People With Kim McCarthy,” the organization dedicated to supporting Greene County’s Kim McCarthy in the effort to bring positive change to the representation for the citizens of the Ohio House 73rd District.
As for my path here, I grew up in Dayton, attending High School at Chaminade Julienne in the heart of the city’s downtown. About a year after graduation, and while attending Sinclair Community College, I enlisted into the “world’s most toughest fighting force,” successfully becoming a Marine. During my tour of duty, I spent time on both of America’s shores training and serving in regular duties. Near the end of my enlistment, I was attached with an infantry company deploying to Okinawa, Japan, for a period of six months. I have recently completed just over four years of active duty service, slowly transitioning back to the familiar life I left behind. I ultimately decided to forgo a promising and honorable career in the Marine Corps, choosing instead to focus my deep desire towards public service towards my more “quieter” yet hefty interest in politics.
Upon my arrival back home in the Miami Valley, I immediately began to explore the local political situation, making my way around some of the local political party functions in search of opportunities as to where my interests and talents may best be of service. After meeting a number of an incredibly inspiring and motivated people, I ended up being introduced to Kim McCarthy. Her energy and drive really spoke to me, and her desire to lead and to work selflessly for the betterment of those around her displayed the kind of quality of leadership I know our citizens are in real need of today. A public servant who is truly that, a servant of the public, one willing to fight selflessly on their behalf. As a Marine, I take that kind of commitment to others seriously, and after spending a few hours with her, recognized the genuineness of it and couldn’t help but want to be a part of that commitment as well. To my excitement, I was invited to do that through service as her campaign manager.
In this role I will lead a group of like-minded individuals who all share in the desire to see the kinds of changes needed in order to better serve the people of her constituency within Greene County, and ultimately the beautiful state of Ohio. I am proud to be working with her as we undertake this empowering journey, entrusting in democracy to deliver the true representation that is so evidently needed.
Let’s get to work
