This letter is to sing the praises of Matt Slater, candidate for Yorktown town supervisor. 

We first met Matt when he was working with then Yorktown Councilman Terrence Murphy. As secretary of the Jefferson Owners Corp. and a resident of Jefferson Village, we also interacted with Matt as chief of staff to Senator Murphy. He was always there making sure things were going well in our community.

Jefferson Village is a 55-plus community of 1,000 units. When Senator Murphy came to check on our community during winter storms, or hurricanes like Hurricane Irene, Matt was in the background making sure everything Senator Murphy wanted done for us went accordingly.

To this “elderly” couple, we found Matt to be a sincere and honest person—and a family man to boot. He has from the start involved his wife and his son in his life. We know he will be a wonderful asset as our town supervisor. He has grown up in Yorktown, has family here, and wants to stay here to make Yorktown a great place to live!
