Ward 1 Councilor Wayne Matewsky takes out papers

By Josh Resnek

Councilor Matewsky with a constituent.

Wayne Matewsky told the Leader Herald Monday afternoon that he has taken out papers and will be running again for the Ward 1 seat.

“I’m feeling a lot better,” Matewsky told the Leader Herald.

It has taken him longer than a year to recover from a serious heart attack he suffered.

That, combined with being the chief caretaker for his mother who is 92, took a lot out of Matewsky.

“But like I said, I’m feeling better now, stronger, more able to do the things that I love in my life. Serving in public office for the people of this city and my ward is what I have been devoted to for decades,” he added.

Matewsky is the longest serving elected public official in the city.

Does he have an opponent?

Not yet and maybe never.
