Matt Klimansky for the Third Ward

To the Editor:

In these contentious political times the character of the candidate you are voting for is more important than ever. I have lived in the Third Ward for 35 years and have seen many changes. With the revitalization going on in town it is more important than ever that we have a councilman who listens to our concerns. Matt Klimansky is that man. I have known Matt for more than 20 years as a neighbor, friend, and assistant scoutmaster for two of my sons. Matt served in the military, has served on the Bayonne Board of Education, and is serving as an assistant scoutmaster for Boy Scout Troop 25. After receiving his Eagle Scout rank as a Boy Scout he continued with the troop in order to give back to the youth in our community. He has taught countless boys the values that are embodied in scouting. I worked with Matt when I was the Committee Chairperson for Troop 25 and always found him to be a caring and hardworking individual. He takes his responsibilities very seriously in work as well as in the troop. As a councilman I am confident that he would give 100 percent to working for the people of the Third Ward.
