On October 24,

Vote Martin Mirt

for Trustee for Waterloo Public School Board

I stand for the following principles:


  • Respect for all

  • Accountability of the board, and

  • Focus on student achievements


As a parent of a child with mental health concerns, I want schools to work together with the community to offer practical solutions and resources to help students and parents who are struggling. I believe students thrive on a strong academic foundation that takes their well-being into account.


I will listen to parents, students, and educators to find common goals that we can all work towards.


As a trustee, my goal is to help students be excited for the future, confident in their individuality, and confident in their abilities to achieve their goals.

About Me

My connection to the Waterloo Region District School Board runs through my kids. My wife of 28 years, Lorie, and I have three great boys.  Two have graduated from Waterloo-Oxford District Secondary School and the youngest is attending Waterloo-Oxford entering grade 10 this fall.


Through my kids, through conversations with other parents with children in the WRDSB and through the local media, I’m hearing about decisions and actions of our board that seem to be moving local public education in the wrong direction.


It seems the focus has moved from lifting all kids up through better skills in basic subjects like math, science and literacy, to the promotion of ideologically driven pet projects of our current board officials.


My goal, if elected to trustee, will be to make sure all students are treated fairly—without exception—and to get the foundational skills and knowledge they need for a successful life. I want students to get what I got from my public education in Waterloo Region.


I’m grateful that I was born and raised in Waterloo Region and graduated from Waterloo Collegiate Institute (WCI). My WCI education gave me the skills to apprentice as a Plastic Injection Mold Maker and move on to be the owner of a local custom apparel and promotional products business.
