    As a 30 year resident of the Beach Village I am endorsing Matthew Kellway. He is a great listener and a tireless advocate for his constituents. It will be a great day if he is elected as the councilor for Ward 19.

    Matthew has the experience needed to manage the Beaches/East York riding as he was previously MP for this area. As part of his platform, he is committed to initiating a study of Woodbine Ave traffic in order to stop the congestion and flow-through neighbourhood traffic.

    He is the best candidate for the job.

    Matthew has already proven to our community that he will take progressive issues forward. He has done it before and will do it again. We need his experience, tenacity, and intelligence at City Hall. He will fight to end poverty, for fully funded child care, and for affordable transit. He is truly committed.

    We would like a sign on our lawn. We would also like a Public School Trustee sign for whichever candidate Matthew Kellway endorses. I’m assuming that will be the person who is replacing Sheila Cary-Meagher. Thank you. Joanne Clarke

    Matthew Kellway is a hard working, caring, committed person, who knows and loves this entire community and has raised his family here. Anytime I contacted Matthew, even when he was not the MP in my area but south of me, he spent time, took my call and remembered our conversation, offering help. He is experienced and I know he is the only candidate who can take on this huge ward and enormous challenge. Vote smart, vote for experience.

    Over the years I have had many discussion with Matthew Kellway about our Ward, community, city politics, as well as the state of our wards high streets. I have always been impressed with Matthews opinion. He deeply cares about our community.

    Now, more than ever we need an experienced politician to represent us at City Hall. Someone with well thought out ideas about real issues, who is able to listen to another’s opinion, someone with a cool head, someone with a track record of community engagement, sis passionate about our community and ready to roll up their sleeves and work on the task at hand. The only Candidate who fits the bill is Matthew Kellway.


    He has my Vote!

    I have been impressed for a number of years by Matthew Kellway’s commitment to public service, both as an elected representative and as a member of the Beach community.

    Matthew Kellway is an experienced leader with a proven understanding of how our city works. In Matt the people of his community will get a hard-working and collaborative representative with a thoughtful approach and strong values. To address the persistent challenges we face together, we need representatives like Matt at City Hall who will look a the big picture and work towards real, lasting progress.

    I am supporting Matthew Kellway because he cares about our community; he makes informed decisions by listening to his constituents and to experts; but mostly, because he is passionate about urban affairs. As our MP, he was the opposition critic for urban affairs and wrote his party’s white paper on cities after consulting with councillors and mayors across the country. This past spring, he travelled to Milan to attend a lecture at the Politecnico di Milano on Regional Urbanisation. I believe we need Matt’s caring, informed decisions and passion at City Hall to help make our community and our City the best they can be.

    Matthew is a proven champion for neighbourhoods and cities. He will be an exceptional representative for the community and an unwavering progressive voice in council.

    Matthew Kellway will be an amazing Councillor for Ward 37. I have known Matthew for a lot of years on a community level, and he has proven his commitment, many times over, to the betterment of pets, people, and our community as a whole.


    I have so much respect for how he has always made himself available, both in his role as MP and afterward, to offer whatever help, support, and guidance was needed on community concerns. I think this is a key quality for our local Councillor to have, and I have no doubt Matthew will continue to make himself available to all as a Ward 37 Councillor.


    Matthew brings experience, dedication, and a passion for community to move Ward 37 forward and help bring a balance to some of the tougher issues we’ve been facing.

    Matt will be a terrific councillor. Unfortunately I’m just outside of the ward so I can’t vote for him, but he would have my vote if I could!

    I have worked with Matthew on numerous occasions over the past several years including on our local school parent council and most recently as part of the Upper Beach Resettlement Group. Working together, the group helped to settle a newcomer Syrian family of five in the Beach area. Over the past two years, Matt stepped up on so many occasions by hosting meetings at his home, registering and taking the newly arrived kids to schools, grocery shopping, and providing support. Matt is reliable, smart and compassionate. I look forward to working with him during the months ahead. Matthew Kellway will be a great addition to Toronto City council and an excellent representative for the constituents of Ward 37.

    I know Matthew as an effective advocate for working families and as a dedicated and hardworking MP for Beaches-East York. He will bring a much-needed progressive voice to City Council. I cannot think of a more qualified candidate for Ward 37.
