It is with enthusiasm that I write in support of John Mattison’s bid for state representative for Rutland’s Ward 5-3 neighborhood.
I have known John and his wonderful family for several years. John’s proven commitment to his community is evident by his continued defense of his ward. Most recently, not only did John mount a call for a reversal of the misguided decision to place a drug rehab center within a dense family neighborhood, he pursued the “powers that be” to redirect their search to more suitable locations.
John’s civic action and awareness of the needs and wants of his neighbors have garnered him bipartisan support throughout his ward and beyond.
John Mattison is invested in the future of his community and will serve them well.
