Matt Johnson

Onondaga County County Board, District 3, NY

Matt is a 20 year old community organizer, medical interpreter, and local nonprofit Vice-President running for Onondaga County Legislature, in District 3. He is running because he believes the county can be doing more for its taxpayers.

Matt is a strong proponent of boosting local economic development and prioritizing the interests of everyday people. Onondaga County desperately requires more transparency, through a proper livestream of meetings, a fair and nonpartisan redistricting process, and legislature sessions scheduled to accommodate working people. With more young people leaving Onondaga County annually, Matt feels strongly that his youthful perspective is invaluable. The county needs to be attracting young people through creating, investing, and promoting opportunities that ensure a thriving economic future. He will also work with representatives at the state and federal levels to improve the county's very outdated infrastructure by pursuing any and every opportunity.

His ultimate belief is that by working together, we can build a better Onondaga County.
