A third-generation Laborer – following in the footsteps of his father and grandfather – Matthew got his start in the construction trades at UC San Diego. He excelled in his field and took leadership roles in managing workers’ safety and overseeing payroll and project budgets. He is proud of the career he built through hard work – and is giving back to the community by making sure others overcome adversity, and have the opportunity to pursue good jobs with fair pay and benefits – and career advancement.

Matthew currently serves as Imperial Beach City Council Member for District 4. 

“You can count on me to work for safer neighborhoods and to improve opportunities for all the people of Imperial Beach, not just the powerful.”
