Thomas F. Fisher, half of the two-man, anti-development ticket that upset the Horsham Republican Party candidates last year, plans to resign from the Township Council tomorrow, 18 weeks after taking office.

In an interview, Fisher urged the council to appoint Francis X. Walsh Jr., a member of the township's Zoning Hearing Board, as his replacement until the next council elections in 1989.
