To the people of Smith’s South
Good day to the people of Constituency 8, Smith's South. My name is Mischa Fubler, and I am the Progressive Labour Party’s candidate.
Over the past few weeks, I have had the immense honour to have met many of the residents in the area. I have been humbled by the warm reception I have received and the willingness of constituents to welcome me into their homes to discuss both constituency and nationally related concerns, and exchange ideas about moving our country forward.
In the lead-up to the by-election, I will continue to canvass door-to-door to expand this dialogue throughout the constituency and to share my values and vision for the future.
I represent the potential for change in the Bermudian political landscape and in Constituency 8. My values include community-building, environmental stewardship, socioeconomic justice, walkable/rideable urban areas and data-driven decision-making.
I envision us building community through activities that align with these values. What we build together depends on what you would like to see happen, but some examples would include:
• A neighbourhood farmer’s market to improve our food security
• Collaboration with local businesses to improve the state of our private estate and main roads affected by their operation
• Events to encourage engagement and increased awareness of the important role green spaces such as Spittal Pond play in the protection of our flora and fauna
We, as a community, have been presented with a unique opportunity: the option of having a young, progressive mind advocating on your behalf. As the father of two young children, I have a vested interest in the long-term success of both our community and our nation.
I am asking for your partnership, your ideas and your trust. Together, we can make our community an even better place for our families and for the generations that will follow. Together, we can be the change we want to see.
My desire is to serve you, Constituency 8, Smith’s South. Working together, we can improve not only our neighbourhood, but we can make change for the betterment of Bermuda and our people.
I humbly request your vote at the polls at the by-election to be held on Thursday, October 5 at St Patrick’s Church. I pledge to be available, to listen and to represent this constituency in the House of Assembly.
