Why We Support Matt
As a former Mayor I know it takes more than just political acumen to provide effective delivery of services, and Matt Slater has demonstrated thoughtfulness and decisiveness that the current town administration lacks. After years of inaction, Matt helped lead the investigation to properly determine the true value of lost revenue to our community through New York State’s untaxed land policy. No problem is too big or too small for him.
To become the most effective member of the freshman conference took partners and teamwork, and we could not have achieved so much without the efforts of Matt Slater. In Yorktown alone, he helped us alienate parkland to preserve a historic cemetery, designate nearly two-dozen local lakes, including Mohegan Lake, Sparkle Lake and Junior Lake, as inland waterways for the purposes of waterfront revitalization and environmental remediation, as well as rename two of Yorktown’s state roads for fallen warriors from the community. He was an outstanding asset to the legislature and will be an outstanding asset for the people of Yorktown as Town Supervisor.
There are a lot of unsung heroes in public service and to have Matt step up from behind the scenes will be a huge win for the people of Yorktown. As my Chief of Staff he helped deliver so many results here, whether it was funding the new weed harvester for Mohegan Lake, helping craft the nation’s most comprehensive opioid abuse prevention and rehabilitation law, or leading relief efforts to bring local aid the victims of Hurricanes Harvey and Maria, he had my back, and he will have the taxpayer’s back as our next Supervisor.
