Name: Dee Dee Martin
Occupation: Teacher, Gingerbread School House, Monroe
Political party: Democrat
Running for: Town Council
Why are you running?
I believe strongly in small town government and I think volunteering for public office is a great way to contribute to your community.
What are the three biggest issues facing Monroe?
Taxes, economic development and lack of communication of issues with the public are three major issues.
What can the Town Council do to keep the town in the right direction?
The Town Council scrutinizes budgets and must be ever mindful of balancing the needs of the community with the resources available. Open meetings are crucial and I would strongly advocate for televised council meetings to better communicate with residents.
What skills and attributes make you a good fit for the Town Council?
As a teacher I know how to look for strengths in individuals and groups, and the necessity for those with different views to work together. My years serving my community demonstrate my commitment to all of Monroe.
