First Letter to Malden

John Matheson. For Mayor. For Malden.

Return the Mayor's Seat to the People of Malden

I'm John Matheson, four-term Ward 3 City Councilor, and I am running for Mayor of the City of Malden. This is a place I have been proud to call home my entire life and it has been my honor to dedicate over a decade of public service to the City Council. Yet as much as I love my home town, I have no doubt that our city government can do better for us. I cannot think of a better way to serve my community than as your new Mayor. Please join me on this wonderful journey as we embark on a new day in Malden.

Responsible Growth

John believes that smart planning is essential to keeping Malden a vibrant community. Excessive apartment development has resulted in congested streets and schools, and a strain on public resources.

As Mayor, John will elevate the role of city planning to understand the impact of any proposed development on all Maldonians; not just the benefits to developers. Read more here

Blue Trash Bag Alternatives

70% of Malden residents want options to the blue trash bags. John has proposed to offer a city-approved trash barrel alternative to using blue bags. Read more here. 

Fair & Honest Fines

Over the past eight years, Maldonians have experienced the highest fines in history, with some fines up nearly 100%. John wants to put a freeze on fines until City Hall can develop a system of fair and honest enforcement. Read more here.

Beautiful Streets

John will create a beautification plan to restore Malden’s trees, curb appeal, and streetscape. John was instrumental in promoting tree care and Malden certification as a Tree City USA. Read more here. 

Beautiful & Clean Malden River

John rightfully believes that our riverfront can and should be one of our greatest assets. John will pursue a collaboration of state, local and community stakeholders to revitalize the river and connect residents through pathways, benches and recreational water access. Read more here.
