Welcome to Matthews talks

What is Matthews Talks?

Matthews Talks is a place where you can come to share what is important to you...and to our town.

There was a time in this country when towns had a spot in the public square, where anyone could express ideas or discuss subjects for which they had great passion.

Having freedom of assembly and freedom of speech to share ideas was a key element in the formation of our country. They're such cherished rights that they're enshrined in the first amendment of the U.S. Constitution.

Matthews Talks..is that spot in the public square. This is the place where you can discuss issues that matter to you and our town with everyone in our community.

What are we going to talk about?

In a word, everything: Government, the environment, race relations, affordable housing, schools, roads, development, how we want our lovely town to grow and much more. You'll hear from citizens just like you on topics that are important to them and to our town.
