Dr. Ada Fisher named to Women for Mitt team

Dr. Ada Fisher of Salisbury has been named to the leadership team of North Carolina Women for Mitt, Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s outreach to female voters across the Tar Heel state.
Fisher, a North Carolina delegate to the Republican National Committee, is one of 12 co-chairwomen of the state Women for Mitt campaign. Others include Dr. Aldona Wos of Greensboro, the former U.S. ambassador to Estonia; U.S. Rep. Sue Myrick of Charlotte and U.S. Rep. Virginia Foxx of Banner Elk, whose district includes part of Rowan County.
A press release said the leadership team will be the primary point of contact for women in their communities who want to get involved in the campaign for Romney and running mate Paul Ryan and will lead the efforts of women’s groups across the state.
The press release said women, “like Governor Romney … want to reduce our deficit, put Americans back to work, and preserve Medicare for current retirees, those nearing retirement and future generations.”
The press release criticizes President Obama, saying his “four years in office haven’t been kind to women.”
“Hundreds of thousands of women have lost their jobs and poverty among women is the highest it’s been in nearly two decades — women cannot afford four more years of President Obama,” the press release said. “Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan have a plan to restore America as the best place in the world for a woman to find a job, start a business and raise a family.”
