By John Nagy Local Journalism Initiative Reporter Fort William First Nation, Ont.- There’s going to be at least one new councillor in the Fort William First Nation council chambers for the upcoming two-year term. That’s because current councillor, Michele Solomon, is running as one of two candidates in the reserve’s race to become chief. Facing off against the First Nation’s former chief, Georjann Morriseau, the eight-year councillor wants to see relationships on council and in the community continue to grow, especially coming out of the pandemic. “Establish some working relationships at the council table and then spending some time hearing from the community and establishing some priorities for the community,” said Solomon, who has been a community development manager with the Ontario Native Women’s Association for the past five years.
