Richard Fisher

An excerpt from Texas Got It Right!:

Most Americans have never heard of him. Heck, most Texans probably haven't either. But if there's one guy who embodies everything that's right about the way we're doing business in Texas today, it's Richard Fisher.

"When I was sworn into office, I checked all politics and partisanship at the door. I am neither an 'R' nor a 'D'; I am politically indfferent.

When I took this job, Alan Greenspan told me I had only one obligation, which in his words was 'to speak to the truth.' I do my best to speak the straight skinny, informed by the work of the staff of the Dallas Fed, the input I receive from the bankers and businesses and citizens of my district, and my own career as a  banker, an investor, a trade negotiator, and a man smart enough to come to Texas thirty-seven years ago." - Richard Fisher, Austin, 2010.
