This past Nevada Day weekend, the Fisher Family, the Fisher for Nevada team and a group of volunteers and supporters journeyed to Nevada’s capital city to participate in several special events, including the Carson City Nevada Day Parade.
Over the course of three days, we met a number of great people who were excited by our mission to create a healthy Nevada and who were interested in learning more about Jared Fisher, a non-establishment candidate and ‘political outsider’ from Southern Nevada.
“We love your Healthy Nevada platform!” One Nevadan commented in a Meet & Greet Session Jared hosted after the parade. “What a great idea.”
“We need more candidates running,” said another resident. “It’s good to have options.”
In the months since becoming the first 2018 gubernatorial candidate to announce his candidacy, Jared has spent much of his time meeting residents in rural Nevada and Clark County while traveling on his Listening Tour. Although Jared had visited Carson City several times during the last six months, it was nice to be able to take some time to chat with Carson City residents from such a wide variety of backgrounds. Jared, Heather and the Fisher for Nevada Team spoke with teachers, students, government employees, famers and factory workers, just to name a few. They also spoke to people from nearly every political party. Some of the issues that came up repeatedly during the course of conservations with both Republicans and Democrats were residents’ concerns about healthcare, education, yucca mountain and solar energy.
It was wonderful to be able to share Nevada’s birthday with so many patriotic and enthusiastic Nevadans. We got a clear sense that Carson City has a strong and supportive community of politically-informed and passionate people. We were deeply impressed and we look forward to participating again in next year’s festivities.
Below are several photo highlights from the day.
