Letter: Matthew Beck for the Mat-Su

The Mat-Su Borough needs a mayor who will bring an open mind, an open ear, and a servant’s heart to the job. Matthew Beck stands alone among the options.Experienced and knowledgeable, Beck was a committed and diligent Borough Assembly member with a demonstrated ability to listen to diverse opinions and represent the whole of a diverse borough. His six-year assembly tenure, including four as deputy mayor, were marked by broad vision and a broad ability to work collaboratively for responsible growth and a bright future for all Mat-Su residents.

Unencumbered by allegiance to special interests, Assemblyman Beck always put the general public interest first. The borough needs that same independent, get-it-done ethic in its mayor. With his commonsense approach to problem-solving, and his strong support for public safety, schools, and critical infrastructure, Matthew Beck is the best choice for the borough.
