Two weeks ago, I joined dozens of our neighbors for the campaign kickoff of Matt Slater for Yorktown supervisor.

I have known Matt for a number of years. He is professional, articulate and thoughtful. Despite his young age, he is perfectly qualified to be our next town supervisor thanks to nearly a decade of experience working in state and county government.

Already, he’s laid out some great ideas for Yorktown that will improve government and get our town moving again. Matt is a refreshing voice with a positive outlook on the future of our town. Most importantly, Matt is a family man. He is raising a young family here and is vested in the success of Yorktown.

I can’t wait to see the great things he has in store for our town. Get ready Yorktown, the future is here, and it is spelled S-L-A-T-E-R.
