Intentions for Mayor Waterbury, CT 2019

Letter of Intent

 Vernon Matthews

Statement of Intent to Run for Mayor Waterbury, CT 2019

Vernon Matthews intially seeked the Republican nomination for Mayor, instead is running as an Indepedent after receiving the party's nomination.  Please accept this letter as my notice of intent to run as Independent nomination for Mayor of the City of Waterbury, Connecticut.  I have been exploring the possibility of running since February 12th, 2019 and now it is time to make it official.  I have had great success in many different interactions with the citizens of Waterbury, including, but not limited to, feeding the homeless and less fortunate on several occasions and starting my “Get On The Bus Wednesdays” (GOTBW) campaign.  I also have taken the time to build a following amongst the pastors in Waterbury and made strides with many of the elder citizens’ groups.  My team and I have been diligently working on our plan of action including reducing the current mill rate, reevaluating where tax funds are spent, and lowering the crime rate.  

We all know we have a great deal of work to do in our great city in restoring morale, reinstilling the need to act towards one another with moral conscience and reducing racial tension and interracial gang-related warfare.  I promise to work with all citizens and stakeholders to make Waterbury a great city again.  My motto “One Voice, One Community” represents the hope of the future, a concept that has been missing for years.  Let’s make history this election season by nominating the first ever African-American Mayoral candidate and let’s work together to stop the status quo and move forward united.
