Politics Near to Heart of Alumnus
Politics is in the heart and blood of 2017 alumnus, Lamar Paul Fisher, Jr. The business graduate from Pompano Beach, Florida, watched his father hold office as City Commissioner and Mayor ever since he was a child and now he set his goals towards politics as well.
“I have seen firsthand how my father and others in the political environment have made a great difference for the good of the community and I would like to continue that as I pursue politics,” said Fisher.
Fisher has had the opportunity to serve on the campaign team as his father, Mayor Lamar Fisher, seeks the seat for commissioner of Broward County for District Four. His responsibilities include managing Mayor Fisher’s social media presence, internet presence and fundraising.
“This experience is molding and preparing me for my personal campaign for Pompano Beach City Commissioner within the next four to six years,” said Fisher.
Following his father’s footsteps, Fisher’s nearest goals are to run for the City of Pompano Beach commissioner and then mayor of Pompano Beach. His ultimate goal is to serve the state of Florida as governor.
“I feel God is calling me to make a difference in today’s political environment and to ultimately point to Him,” said Fisher.
In addition to politics, Fisher has a passion for real estate. He currently works for one of the top tier auction real estate firms in the nation and family owned business, Fisher Auction Company. Fisher serves as the executive vice president of business development and holds his real estate license.
Throughout Fisher’s time at Palm Beach Atlantic University, he was involved in Student Government Association (SGA). He served as SGA’s speaker of the house and policy coordinator from his junior year through his senior year. Among other campus involvements, Fisher was involved in the College Republicans Club, the College Democratic Club and intramural sports.
