Martin grew up on West 26th Street in the City of Lorain in a union middle-class family. As a child, he remembered his father riding his ten-speed bike from their home to U.S. Steel. Martin’s dad was proud to be a union worker and Martin is honored to currently be a union leader with the Lorain Education Association and the Lorain County AFL-CIO.
Martin is married to his beautiful wife Kyle and is raising his family in Amherst, Ohio. He is a current Amherst City Councilmember, teaches language arts at Longfellow Middle School in Lorain and created a non-profit organization that educates youth about local environmental concerns and teaches them how to be proactive in addressing those issues, while creating pride for their community.
In the Spring of 2015, Martin found his nine-year-old son on the bathroom floor in the middle of the night. Thanks to our great Northeast Ohio hospitals Martin’s son was saved that night, but they discovered that he had an undiagnosed heart condition. His only option of survival was a heart transplant. Martin and his wife were blessed with a transplant and their son is now 16 years old. Martin wants to fight to improve healthcare to ensure other families do not struggle financially like his family has for years with his son’s healthcare bills.
