Ben Fisher to Challenge Mayor Senter in Primary

Ben FisherTwenty-eight year old, Ben Fisher of Plymouth has had a dream and goal in his sights since he was fourteen years old; to some day run for Mayor of his Hometown.

On Wednesday, Fisher embarked on the journey to fulfill his goal. He filed his candidacy in the Marshall County Court House to challenge Mayor Mark Senter in the May primary.

Fisher says he have firsthand knowledge that Plymouth is a warm, caring and inviting community. He said, “I know this from a personal tragedy I suffered at the age of 13. Everyone stepped up to help during this time. I remember the thousands of people praying, offering help, well wishes, gifts, you name it, Plymouth was there. Now it is my turn to step up, again, say thank you to my City”.

Fisher was involved in a horrendous car accident that took the life of his older brother, and nearly his own. Because of the accident he has had to overcome many obstacles in the last 14 years.

Ben said in a press release, “I was taught at a young age, dream big, set even bigger goals, stay positive. Everything is possible. Just believe!”

During his lifetime Fisher has been a volunteer within his community and also stretched into St Joseph County, with Catholic Charities and St Joseph County United Way. He has donated many man hours, helping fill and stack sandbags in Marshall and Starke Counties and said, “It isn’t the person that does the good. It’s the good a person does.

Ben Fisher is employed by Traffic Control Specialists (TCS) as a flagger and contractor, setting barricades and warning/traffic signs.

In closing, Fisher thanked the entire City of Plymouth for the support he has received over the years.   He listed his cell phone number (780-0976) so that he may be reached by any community member. He will listen and wants to know from each what you would like to see in your town. “It takes a village to raise a child. It takes a United Community to make a successful City. Let us all work together to make Plymouth a premier city that make visitors ask themselves, ‘Why don’t we live here?’”.
