Matthews has experienced tremendous growth in part due to the careful planning and good leadership of many people who have served our town for so many years. Despite this growth we have managed to maintain a charming, small town feel and quality of life. I'm proud of my role in shaping the town over many terms as a Commissioner and if I am honored with another term I pledge to make sure we never lose this wonderful quality of life.
When greenways were first proposed in Matthews, some residents expressed concerns about them. Now, the greenways are one of the most popular attractions and are used by many people for exercise and recreation. Homes near the greenways continue to be in high demand. I remain committed to the Town's long term plan for parks and greenways because both truly enhance our quality of life.
Matthews enjoys a rich history and many people in the town including my friend Paula Lester have worked hard to preserver our history so everyone can enjoy it. It has been my pleasure to serve on the Board of Directors of the Matthews Historical Foundation for many years. I believe knowing our history provides the proper context to making sure we truly preserve and protect to essence of Matthews as we grow.
Our police, fire and EMS provide critical services to protect life and property for our citizens. I am proud of the efforts underway to make our streets even safer and to increase response time and overall services in this area. Our citizens deserve representation by leaders who are committed to this crucial service of the Town.
I am committed to using my professional training as an Architect along with my skills in planning and experience on the Town Board to make sure all Matthews development lives up to the high standards we have always expected in this town.
Every town has some basic and legitimate responsibilities that must be met for the citizens. Public Safety, which includes police, fire, EMS and Public Works are essential. These and other important roles of government must be properly funded. At the same time, we must be good stewards of the resources the citizens pay through taxes. I am committed to keep taxes as low as possible while efficiently providing our important services.
Your donation is an opportunity to be part of something bigger. Show JOHN URBAN that you have his back. Give today!
