A Letter From 

Steve Matteo

Dear Neighbor:

I want to take a few minutes of your time to tell you about my son, Steven Matteo, who is running to be our next Borough President.

As I write this, it feels a bit surreal because when I close my eyes, I can still see him on the High School baseball field. Time truly does fly.

While on that field, he had big dreams for the future. He always knew he wanted to do something to make a difference. When he got into government, he found his vehicle for making that wish come true.

Steven has always had two essential leadership qualities:

  • He is dependable. When he says he’s going to do something, he always comes through.
  • He always does what he believes is right, no matter what.

Even though I’m super proud of him as a leader, I have to say I’m most proud of him for the man he is. I wish everyone had the opportunity to see how he is with his family, especially my grandchildren. Despite doing important and often stressful work, when he is with his kids he’s just “Dad.”

My only regret is that my husband is not here to see Steven run for Borough President, just as he always predicted he would. When Steven first ran for City Council, his Dad was so eager to volunteer in whatever capacity to help. He would be so excited and proud to be a part of this now.

Primary Day is June 22. I ask that you join me in voting for my son, Steven Matteo, for Borough President. To let me know that you’re committed to voting for Steven, please click the link below and let us know we can count on you.
