Martin Fisher, Ward 3


Why are you running?

I am running for office to help make my community a better place to live. 

I believe that I have the life experience required to effectively contribute to my community in this political capacity.  

I think that people who can contribute should contribute in their own way.  

I can listen to people, and convey those thoughts to council so that all perspectives might be heard on any given issue.

What are the key issues?

The deforestation issue is a prevalent issue in Ward 3, as well as all of Chatham-Kent.

There is also a common concern that nothing is being done in our ward, for our ward, and that all our taxes are going to the benefit of Chatham.  I would like to see that sentiment eroded.

I would like to see fibre optic Internet availability increased in Chatham-Kent, and especially in our ward as well.  

What do you hope to achieve if elected?

I want the constituents in Ward 3 to be represented at council, and that they feel represented at council.  

What skills and experience do you bring?

I am a paralegal, and advocate for my clients with other parties, and in court, as well as tribunals.

I am on the board of directors of the Federation of Ontario Paralegals. I was also on a condominium board of directors for two years in the 1990s.  These experiences have taught me how to be effective working within an organization such as the Chatham-Kent municipal council.
