If you are looking for someone with honor and integrity, active in the Des Moines community, loves his city and has the life experiences required to serve on your City Council, then I would be honored to have your vote again.


Everyone knows we need a healthy business environment, a revitalized downtown, improved public safety and an enhanced waterfront.  This requires leaders who hear issues, weigh opinions, and make sound, informed decisions for a sustainable future.


As your Current Des Moines Deputy Mayor, a Veteran, Former Fire Commissioner, and active volunteer, I know what it means to serve.  Husband, father, and grandfather dedicated to family, friends, and neighbors.  Successful businessman and motivator.  A communicator who connects businesses and people, listens, and works for “all” residents. Supported by Community Leaders, Police Guild, Councilmembers and Residents who understand this city must move forward. I listen, learn, and am accountable. Vote Matt Mahoney.

As a lifelong resident of Des Moines, I understand the things we all want for our unique and beautiful waterfront community.  My work as a teacher and community advocate has prepared me for public service.

I’ve dedicated my career to helping students in South King County receive the resources and tools they need to be successful students. In my spare time, I give back to our community by volunteering with ESL students who live in South King county. I will provide complete transparency and accountability in all aspects of our city government and will be accountable to you, the voters. I want to prioritize creating job and career opportunities for our students and young adults so they can thrive in our economy.

I am endorsed by Congressman Adam Smith, Tacoma Mayor Victoria Woodards, State Representative Jesse Johnson, Des Moines City Council Anthony Martinelli, and Tukwila Councilmember Cynthia Delostrinos.
