Prof. Dr. Debbie Chapman, has been a very strong supporter of the Afghan Association and a great help to every member of our community who lives in her riding. Therefore, we strongly support her re-election as the city councillor for Ward 9.
We have witnessed Debbie Chapman in action advocating for, and truly representing our ward for the past four years. She keeps informed on the issues and concerns of our community, and conveys their importance at council. Her assistance in navigating the development arena when we faced a large-scale proposal was inspired and unwavering, and ultimately successful as we gained a development solution more appropriate in size and scale for our neighbourhood.
Thank you Debbie!

Not only is Debbie Chapman very involved in the Kitchener community, she’s approachable, hardworking, knowledgeable and really cares about residents' concerns and acts on them. She is the best candidate to navigate and represent residents through the major changes taking place within our communities without prejudice.
Ward 9 Resident
Debbie Chapman has always been responsive to any concerns, and always answers emails and phone calls, something that isn't true for many politicians. She has gone the distance for us and helped in any way that she could. She has a very real concern about climate issues, and works to make change wherever possible. It's Debbie's face that I always see out at community events cheering on our local musicians and artists and supporting people experiencing crises in housing and healthcare; in fact, I think I first met Debbie at the Non-Violence Festival before she became my city councillor.
I'm thrilled that Debbie is running for Council again!

Debbie Chapman has been an incredible asset to issues facing Ward 9 residents. She not only advocates for us in council chambers, but has participated time and again in small community meetings. She seeks to support, understand and amplify our voices throughout the many challenges experienced when balancing new developments with the historic character of the neighborhoods we live in. I wholeheartedly endorse the hard working and committed Debbie Chapman as the Ward 9 candidate.

We have seen first hand, Debbie’s, unwavering strength, dedication and intelligence. In her first term of office, she listened to her constituents and the community at large. She immersed herself in community issues, asked questions, thought critically about issues brought to council, kept an open mind, and articulated insightful conclusions.
She has demonstrated that she is compassionate and understands the needs of the community.
Debbie has demonstrated that she will not be bullied. She is her own person who stands up for what she believes. We are so happy that Debbie is running for a second term as councillor of Ward 9.
