a message from Matthew

Twenty-two years ago, my wife Donna and I chose to start a family in this community and I am deeply invested in building it.

I have served as the MP for Beaches-East York and my party's Urban Affairs, Infrastructure and Deputy Transport Critic. I have also always been active in this community that I call home. I have the experience, the passion and the understanding to move things forward. 

Most recently, I have:

  • chaired the Out of the Cold program in the Beach, at the Church of St. Aidan.

  • coached house league hockey and co-managed, with Donna, our son's Select team.

  • co-chaired the Upper Beach Refugee Resettlement Committee, which helped a Syrian family make a home in to our neighbourhood. 

  • founded two local environmental groups - Toronto Energy Coalition and GreenEast - to help push the city to meet its sustainability targets.

  • chaired the St. John Elementary School Parent Council. 

These are just a few of the many ways that I have been able to contribute. I am committed to serving because I am passionate about making this city and our home in the city better for everyone. 

As your City Councillor, I'll be our community's biggest champion.  Whether it's about transit and affordable housing or recreation facilities, road safety and thriving main streets, I will listen to you, I will work with you and I will stand up for you. I am ready and able to start working for you on day one. 

Thank you!

Matthew Kellway
