We are writing because of the dishonest and shameful character attacks being lodged against our friend Matt Slater by Ilan Gilbert and the Yorktown Democratic Committee.
They are baseless, ridiculous and both Supervisor Gilbert and his supporters should be ashamed of their conduct. First, as Senator Murphy’s Chief-of-staff, Matt assembled a talented and diverse team that well-served the residents of Yorktown and the entire 40th State Senate District. As we can personally attest, our staff was racially diverse, age-inclusive and brought together people of different political affiliations, ideologies and personal backgrounds in pursuit of public service.
Through Matt’s leadership and that of Senator Murphy, we delivered real results for the residents of Yorktown, including record state funding to repair local roads, purchase new equipment for Yorktown’s fire departments and expand the Yorktown Police Department’s K-9 Unit.
Matt is an accomplished leader who will give Yorktown a fresh start. Unlike Ilan Gilbert’s shameful and slanderous conduct, Matt will be a supervisor that everyone in Yorktown can be proud of. We encourage you to vote for him on November 5th.
