Elect Michael Martin for Deputy Mayor
Town of The Blue Mountains

Why I am Running

Experienced Leadership: Listens, Takes Action, Gets Results!

I believe in good municipal government and I truly enjoy being a representative of the people in this community. I have practical and relevant experience on Council and in my professional career representing municipalities, ratepayers, and citizens groups as well as acting on the other side of the table for the development industry. 

By vacating my current Council seat, all of the Council seats will be open for election of new members with new ideas. Having served constituents for 14 years on Council, I have the experience to guide our new Council.

As the Deputy Mayor, I can provide all Council members with guidance, experience and continuity. This background would be important in specific areas such as the strengths and weaknesses of the Official Plan, the response (negative and positive) to the new comprehensive zoning by law and work on the initiatives of the “Grey County-Blue Mountains Task Force” on which I am co chair with the Warden. Negotiations to ensure the Town obtains full value in services for its 26% of the County budget will also benefit from an experienced voice.

As Deputy Mayor, I will focus on three priorities:

- Good Municipal Governance

- Effective Economic Development

- Achievable & Sustainable Targets
