Get to Know Michele Fisher – Liberal Party Candidate Nominee for MP in Dufferin-Caledon

Michele FisherWhy did you choose to seek the Dufferin-Caledon Liberal Party nomination?

It would be a true honour for me to serve the people of Dufferin-Caledon and be a strong voice for our concerns in Ottawa. I care a lot about our community and the issues we face on a local, national and global level. It may sound crazy, but the idea of helping to create policy and legislation that will bring opportunity to our riding and protect the future of our country, that gets me up in the morning.

How will you represent Dufferin-Caledon at the federal level?

I plan to be very active and keep my ears and feet on the ground. Representing our riding means staying connected with the real life concerns of residents and finding progressive solutions to make life better for all.

What do you consider are the top 2 issues on Dufferin-Caledon voters’ minds?

Without question, the two top issues that I’ve been hearing about are climate change and the economy. People feel strongly that the time for action on climate change is now. Equally, they want to ensure that we keep up the positive momentum of our economy.

What is your plan to connect with residents?

I want to meet and speak with as many people as I can in the coming months… in all areas of the riding and from all walks of life.

What is unique about you that you believe sets you apart as a candidate?

I’m genuinely interested in bringing together people from across the political spectrum, so that we can come up with the best solutions for our collective future. I come from a family with a history of public service. Both parents were in elected office. Though they served at the municipal level, my mother was a Conservative and my father voted NDP. So you can say I come by respecting all sides naturally!

Also, I haven’t just sat on the sidelines. I’ve been very engaged in the community over the last number of years. Currently, I am president of the Rotary Club of Orangeville Highlands and last year I was president of CFUW Orangeville & District. With CAMP (Citizens Against the Melville Pit), I was part of a group that fought to protect local water, and with New Neighbours, I helped sponsor and settle a wonderful family from Syria to Orangeville.
