Fisher joins Adler’s staff

Friday, February 23, 2018 by Jo Clifton

Ashley Fisher has joined the staff of Mayor Steve Adler as a policy adviser. Fisher has considerable City Hall experience, having served as an aide to Council Member Pio Renteria and former Council Member Bill Spelman. In addition, Fisher has worked as a planner in Austin Resource Recovery, and she served as interim publisher of the Austin Monitor from June 2017 to January 2018. She joins another new member of the mayor’s staff who has worked at City Hall, Michael McGill. McGill worked for Sheryl Cole when she was on City Council and then moved to the Office of the City Auditor before joining the mayor’s staff last month. Jim Wick has taken a leave of absence to work on the mayor’s re-election campaign, and Lesley Varghese, who is expecting a new baby shortly, will soon be on maternity leave. This whisper has been corrected to reflect Fisher’s job duties at ARR.
