Hello Summit Voters:

From the bottom of my heart, thank you for supporting me in my campaign for Common Council. The experience of running was one of the most rewarding experiences of my life, and I do not take the responsibility of governing lightly.  

Summit is a very special place and I am honored to be part of the team that will maintain its special character while at the same time, taking it into the future.

I told you that I would be proactive, creative, hard working and collaborative, and that is what I will do.

I told you that Summit has three pillars that make our city so special - the schools, the downtown, and the commute. I will work to improve all three of these pillars from their already strong foundations.

Right now, Summit is at a crossroads. The decisions we make in the near future will have a profound impact not only during the next few years but possibly for decades. My fellow Council representatives and I won’t stand still and be complacent. I’m excited to roll up my sleeves and collaborate with the Council, our excellent municipal staff members, and the best police, fire, and EMS departments in New Jersey to move Summit forward.

Matt Gould, Councilman-Elect, Ward 1
