Matt King has more than 20 years experience in the private sector working with information systems. He now works as an IT consultant to Procter & Gamble.
Why are you running?
I believe a return to core services and functions will benefit West Chester today and provide a solid footing for future generations. My experience in the private sector has forced me to work extensively with other professionals and companies. I want to use that experience to find new ways to solve old problems while civilly working with the other Trustees and the Township staff to accomplish our goals.
What makes you the best candidate?
I have spent more than 25 years in the private sector working with every size company from small entrepreneurial start up to multi-national Fortune 100. During that time, I have served in many roles from sales to information technology to executive leadership. My unique business background and focus on technology allow me to approach problems and issues from different angles, many times taking a step back and then approaching the issue from a new perspective. These are the exact skills that government lacks and so desperately needs. No other candidate can claim the diversity of experience I have to offer West Chester.
What specific services are you willing to cut?
I believe a system of priorities is the proper way to determine where expenditures should be reduced. I suspect, however, that each of the four candidates running for West Chester Trustee will agree on this simple answer. It is the manner in which we would prioritize those reductions that I believe we would vastly differ. First of all, I believe that in every decision, all West Chester communities and business districts should be considered equally. The people and business owners deserve a voice in the decision process as well. Weight should be given to governmental services and the long term effect of special projects, both from a financial and on-going maintenance perspective, must be considered as well.
