Get Out the VOTE!!

With Primary Day tomorrow (June 27) I wanted to share a little about myself, how I serve our community, and why I’m running for 2nd ward City Council.

I’m an independent Democrat and I’m honored to be Endorsed by Union Workers and Members of PEF and the PBA of NYS.
I have been a resident of the Second Ward here in the City of Tonawanda for over a decade, in one of the city's older homes with a lot of history. I take pride in our City. I am an active volunteer of this community and am responsible for some great City programs.
I am a father to a strong, creative little girl who I am raising in the City of Tonawanda. Trying to show her the good in people and how to serve her community for the positive.
I am a husband to a local City of Tonawanda artist.
I am a volunteer youth soccer coach for the Tonawanda Soccer Club.
I am a Veteran and current member and board member of the local Tonawanda American Legion.
Prior Union Rep and Executive Board Member
Retired NYPD officer
I am currently the Chairperson of the Mayor's Office of Strategic Initiatives and Community Engagement.
I created and run the City of Tonawanda Veteran of the Month Award.
I chair and organize the City of Tonawanda Open House and Touch a Truck event.
I organize the Mayor’s Summer Reading Program which focuses on continued reading access to City of Tonawanda youth during the summer months. I thank my board members for their help and love for our community.
I was recently appointed to the City of Tonawanda Cemetery Board.
I appreciate all the support and have had a
wonderful time
talking to so many of you about your concerns and ideas for our city. I want to be part of making this City a positive place to live and raise my family.
A couple of the main reasons why I am running for City Council. I am running to combat the rubber stamping of tax increases that have come to be expected by current and past council members. I’m also running to fix the unfair home reassessments that will cause an undue burden to all residents, especially those on fixed incomes.
Some of my visions include..
• stop the continued yearly tax increases.
• address the unfair home reassessments.
• fix and repair forgotten side walks
• address the issues with speeding through our city.
• address winter parking regulations.
• continue my ongoing community service to our community.
I would be honored to have your vote tomorrow.
To learn more about myself and my visions, please visit my website at and/or contact me and I would love to come and chat.
As my flyers say..
“I work hard to provide for my family, and I enjoy raising my family in the City of Tonawanda. I pay the same taxes as everyone else. I get hit with the same tax increases as everyone else. I’m running to hold the line on the constant tax increases. I want to be able to afford to raise my daughter in our city.”
Thank you,
~ Christopher Fisher

Chris' Visions and Ideas for the 2nd Ward and The City of Tonawanda

  VISIONS FOR OUR COMMUNITY Keep taxes from continually increasing every year. Adjust the parking regulations so the overnight parking ban does not take effect on October 1st or last until March 31st when the weather is projected to be warm enough to allow for on-street parking.  Ensuring forgotten sidewalks that need repair are fixed or replaced adequately.  As a member of the city's primary legislative body, the Council; Chris will represent the interests of all the residents citywide by using feedback metrics.

Chris' Time in Public Service

  While serving in the Army during 9/11, I was intrigued with New York City and the NYPD. After serving in the Army, I went to New York and took the test to become one of New York’s Finest. I got to see things most people only dream about. When the opportunity arose to return to Western New York and continue to be a police officer, I was honored to be able to do something I love and return home. Because of the differences in the pension systems, I was able to file for early retirement with the NYPD before accepting a job as a police officer with the State University Police. I am thankful for my time as a SUNY police officer because I was able to complete a bachelor’s degree and start a master’s degree program with SUNY assistance. After completing my studies, I went on to become a criminal investigator and then senior criminal investigator with the Health Department. My work leads me to partner with local, state, and federal law enforcement agencies. I still work as a police officer pa
