MATT ROGERS

Your Candidate for Ward 2 Councillor

 

WHO I AM

Meet Matt

I have been a bit of a political junkie for as long as I can remember... I am not sure how or why it started, but it has always been a part of who I am. I have also always been interested in all sorts of design; from homes and buildings, cars and trucks, and even the layouts of cities. The built form that surrounds us in our daily lives has always been, and always will be, truly fascinating to me.


From around the age of 5 to about 17, I had always thought that architecture and the physical design of individual buildings and spaces was my calling. It took until late in my high school career for me to realize that was not the case. In fact, it was the larger and complex built-form of our towns and cities that was my true passion. The ways we interact with one another in public spaces, the ways we get from Point A to Point B, the effects different modes of transportation have on a community, its residents and its economy, and how all of this culminates to create the society we live in... it boggles the mind. For me, it is the perfect field, because it is so incredibly intricate, yet still simple enough that it can be comprehended by anyone willing to put in the time required. These were factors that I had considered when delegating to council on various projects over the past few years, including the multiplex (where some of my suggestions are being implemented). 

Given my long-held passions, it may not come as a surprise that I have ambitious professional aspirations. Although the staff of every city's planning division play beyond-crucial roles in the functions and management of our ever-changing communities, I've always wanted to play a larger more meaningful role and as your councillor I can do that. 


This is why I decided to run for office in the community that I grew up in, the place I've called home for so many years, the place I would like my children to call home someday. With my interest in politics, my intense passion for shaping our communities in a way that helps us all, and my in-depth knowledge of the Hespeler community, I will be your voice on City Council, pushing for policies and investments that will help you and your loved ones live happier, healthier, more fulfilling lives.
