Smart Voter Political Philosophy for Matt Pear

Candidate for
Council Member; City of Mountain View

This information is provided by the candidate


I'm running for Re-Election because:

  • Of my life-long connection to the City of Mountain View, where my grandparents established an orchard over a century ago;
  • I want to see our City continue to improve and enhance the overall quality of life that has given our City its charm; and
  • To ensure that we continue to balance our City's budget and maintain our AAA credit rating.

My Goals are to continue to:
  • Strengthen neighborhoods and expand resident communications.
  • Ensure effective use of taxpayer dollars to maintain public safety, city infrastructure, and senior and youth programs.
  • Balance the City's budget by increasing revenues through economic development, not through additional fees. Support Smart Growth principles and water conservation so our existing infrastructure is not overloaded.
  • Work with local school boards to improve youth programs, recreational field use, and open space.
