Matt represents the Tonbridge Medway ward following his successful election campaign in 2019. He was previously a Borough Councillor in Maidstone representing the Fant ward which he successfully won after a very tough by-election campaign. In July 2021, he was elected as Leader of Tonbridge & Malling Borough Council.
"I have lived in Kent all of my life and am proud to call Tonbridge my home. For a number of years I have been active in the local community, supporting our MP, Tom Tugendhat and local councillors and campaigners. As someone who works in the town and walks to work each day, I appreciate the importance of making sure our footpaths are well maintained, our parks are clean and free of litter and pollution is limited. I’m committed to helping reduce congestion and see more businesses invest in our town. If elected, I’ll help keep our town a great place to live."
