Charles 'Chuck' Martin for Elyria City Council
Martin, a global manufacturing implementation coordinator for Ridge Tool, has lived in Elyria for 60 years.
The lifelong Elyria resident says he is passionate about the overall well-being of the city, and believes his education, professional and volunteer experience and fresh perspective makes him a viable candidate.
He is an Elyria Catholic High School graduate and holds a bachelor’s of arts in Business Administration from Capital University.
Martin and his wife, Janet, have two children. He is a member of the Knights of Columbus Council 774 and the Elyria United Polish club.
Martin said if elected, he plans to improve on-going efforts to reduce costs, improve efficiency and leverage technology.
“I believe that in the current environment of tight revenue, being fiscally responsible and a good steward of taxpayer dollars is critical,” Martin said.
With his professional experience, Martin said he possesses the skills to effectively develop and implement practical solutions to the issues facing the city of Elyria and its citizens.
