FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
July 7, 2017
Las Vegas, Nevada—Las Vegas business owner Jared Fisher is no stranger to “being first.” Fisher was the first to open a multi-state bicycle touring company and outdoor tourism business in Las Vegas. He was the first to recognize that a tremendous business opportunity existed in Southern Nevada’s expansive outdoors, thus began biking and hiking tours of Red Rock Canyon. And he was the first business owner in Las Vegas to embrace renewable energy efficiencies, installing over 200 solar panels and one of the Vegas Valley’s only vertical wind turbines at his company headquarters in Summerlin.
His most recent “First”, however, is perhaps his biggest and most ambitious “First” to date. In April 2017, Jared Fisher became the first 2018 candidate to declare a run for Governor of Nevada.
“People ask me if I’m concerned about being the first to declare,” said Fisher. “But I’m not afraid to be the first.”
Fisher is not afraid to afraid to take risks—A quality that has served him well as a business owner, an adventurer, and now, as a candidate running on the Republican ticket.
“I think it’s important to think outside the box and to not be afraid to try something different if the old ways of doing things aren’t working,” explained Fisher. “My goal is to make Nevada a leader—a leader in renewable energy, a leader in a diversified economy and a leader in education. I am running for a healthy Nevada. I want to make Nevada first.”
Fisher admits he has some hurdles to overcome, number one being the perception that he lacks the political experience to hold public office. While he has spent the last 25 years growing a successful national tour company, this will be his first time running for a position in government.
“Some people have referred to me as ‘The Bike Guy,’ commented Fisher. “That’s okay as long as they know how serious I am about this. I will be a voice for the good people of Nevada. This Bike Guy and his bicycle are committed to this race—We’re used to hard work and endurance paying off, and so we see no reason to stop now.”
Since Fisher declared, others have followed suit and announced their candidacy, however Jared remains the fist—and so far, only—Republican candidate in the race.
