My family has known Matt Slater, candidate for Yorktown supervisor, since he was a young boy and we have seen him grow into a fine man.
I’ve had great conversations with Matt about his time working in the New York State Senate, his vision for Yorktown and how he plans to improve the overall customer service for my town, YOUR town, Yorktown!
I was struck by Matt’s compassion and recognition for our seniors. We all know it is so challenging to afford to stay in Yorktown, especially on a fixed income. Our taxes continue to go up, utility rates continue to rise and our seniors are left to figure out how to pay for it all. Matt Slater understands that, and at a public hearing regarding the water rate increase of 14 percent, he pointed out how this would impact the seniors of Yorktown. The increase may only be nickels and dimes but it all adds up.
I look forward to Matt Slater’s leadership because I am confident he will be a voice for our seniors.
Having someone with his experience, vision and kindness will be a nice change for Yorktown.
