I am writing in support of Matthew Harrington, candidate for Modesto City Schools District 7. I’ve known Matthew for 20 years, since when he was a student at Teel Middle School. Even then he showed integrity and honesty and was a hard worker. Matthew has been a community volunteer all his life, working to help his community through leadership and volunteerism. He has served on the South Modesto Municipal Advisory Council for the last four years which takes in nearly all of District 7.
Through working closely with Stanislaus County representatives, he has helped provide a voice for the area. The MAC representative attends county board meetings, collaborates with other organizations and works closely with law enforcement. Matthew is there to help find solutions for the community.
When an election in 2017 for District 7 was in jeopardy, Matthew spoke up at district board meetings. Matthew’s interest in the district is not newly founded. Where were the other two candidates during meetings? My support is for Matthew Harrington, the person who was there to represent District 7 even before there was a District 7!
