Byron Matto Portsmouth City Council
Progressive and Pragmatic
I've thought quite a bit about whether this is the right time, or even something I want to do. The reason why I feel compelled to serve in this way is simple; there is no time to wait. Our community, like thousands of other communities, need long-term fact-based solutions to complex existential problems.
The time of #justsayin’ politics is passed.
The policy goals our city works towards need to be clear, and how we get there needs to be tested and verified by data.
- Climate Action
- Housing For All
- Multi-Modal Transportation
- Sustainable Economics
- Informed and Active Citizenry
- Smart Land Use and Planning
These issues are independent and interdependent. Understanding that multi-modal transportation, housing, and smart land use are critical to climate action is what I am about. Our city should be a model on how to take an influx of people/interest and turn that energy into zero-emission and economically sustainable growth.
I look forward to hearing from my neighbors on their concerns, and their ideas on how to move our city forward into the 21st century.
