Second Letter to Malden

John Matheson. For Mayor. For Malden.

Return the Mayor's Seat to the People of Malden

We Are Having an Impact!

Early in our campaign, I declared it a priority to give Malden residents options to the PAYT blue bag program. In my years as City Councilor, I have heard loud and clear that Malden residents want the opportunity for full-size barrels for trash removal and mixed recycling.  I agree!

Because of the attention our campaign has brought to this issue, the PAYT blue bag program finally appears likely to change. Regardless, we must not forget that the current mayor had 8 years to serve the residents on this issue but instead chose to ignore it until our campaign stood up for The People. Sadly, career politicians have become synonymous with broken promises such as this. 

Are You Satisfied with Malden's PAYT Blue Bags? Tell Us Your Thoughts. We Are Listening.

Notably, the mayor has indicated that he is only open to change if homeowners are charged $10 per month, per household, so that a 3-family home would pay $360 per year. While condo owners like the mayor are not required to buy blue bags, the Malden homeowners who have been inconvenienced all these years will now pay hundreds more if the mayor gets his way.

I am proud of the early success of our campaign. We brought attention to important issues, and we have made the mayor accountable to The People. While career politicians prefer uninformed voters, it is the goal of our campaign to empower people with facts. 

Our campaign is all about accountability. We care about Maldonians and their quality of life. We believe it is the government's job to make Madlen the best city it can be for The People who live here and pay the bills. Our success and growing momentum are a clear indication that we are poised to win. However, our work is just beginning and we need your help.  I hope that you will join us on this journey and spread the word that I, John Matheson, will be a Mayor For The People.
