Fischer’s goal now is to further familiarize himself with Metro Government. After he narrowly defeated Hal Heiner in the mayoral election, Fischer said despite having Mayor Jerry Abramson’s endorsement, he has not talked with the mayor about moving into Metro Hall.
“We haven’t had any conversations,” he says. “We’ve been focused on winning this race and we’ll talk about the transition in the morning.”
The team of advisors Fischer calls his Kitchen Cabinet will help lead the transition. Money has been set aside in the city budget to finance an interim staff until Fischer is sworn in in January.
