VIENNA, VA — Delegate Mark Keam (D-Fairfax) announced today that on Tuesday, February 19, he will lead a "Center Aisle Presentation" in the Virginia House of Delegates in honor of the late Delegate Richard Leland "Dick" Fisher who passed away in 2012.
Fisher was a Republican who served three terms in the House of Delegates from 1990-96, representing the same 35th House District seat currently held by Keam. Fisher had also served three terms on the Vienna Town Council prior to his time in the General Assembly. Fisher was particularly known for his passion to speak on behalf of children with special needs.
In January, the House of Delegates and the State Senate adopted House Joint Resolution 735 to memorialize and to celebrate Fisher's life. On Tuesday, Keam will be joined by Fisher's widow Tina, his former Legislative Aide Mike Polychrones, and many friends in a special formal ceremony on the Floor of the House of Delegates to honor his passing.
Members of the media or the public interested in attending or covering this ceremony should contact Julia Kim at (703) 350-3911.
