Mathew Muratore headed to state House of Representatives

It wasn’t close, not in the number of votes each received or in the dramatically different way their campaigns for state representative ended.

Tuesday night, before the final numbers came in, Plymouth Selectman Matt Muratore declared victory before a large, well-dressed crowd in a brightly decorated ballroom at the Radisson Hotel.

3 questions for: Selectman Mathew Muratore, candidate for state rep. from the 1st Plymouth District

Question 1
Do you believe that the 400th anniversary celebration will make an important and lasting contribution to the town of Plymouth and, if so, is the state doing enough to support that celebration? What will you do, if elected as state representative, to increase the state’s support?

Since tourism is our number one industry, I am convinced that this celebration will have an important and lasting impact on the local and regional economy for many years to come. It will bring Plymouth to national and even international prominence as we share the story of our history with the world in a very public way. Our entire legislative delegation has been very proactive about obtaining funding for the 400th anniversary celebration in the state budget. For the past few years, they have successfully included matching grant funding in the annual budget for seed money for the Plymouth 400th, which has enabled Plymouth 400 Inc. to hire an executive director and other staff and to engage in planning activities and event promotions. As we are now less than six years away from 2020, the state must continue to help our community lay the groundwork for a successful 2020 celebration and a corresponding economic boost.

ELECTION 2014: Muratore – ‘Check your ego at the door’

By Frank Mand
Old Colony Memorial/Wicked Local

PLYMOUTH – Gabriel Lane resident Matt Muratore says if he’s elected to fill the seat being vacated by state Rep. Vinny deMacedo, he’ll continue the town’s tradition of bi-partisanship.

The 53-year old Republican selectman said that Plymouth has a deserved reputation of electing people who work together, regardless of whether they are Democrats or Republicans.

“In part that’s a real tribute to what Vinny (deMacedo) and Terry (Senate President Therese Murray) and state Rep. Tom Calter have done in the last several years,” Muratore said, “but I’m also proud that it’s something we have been able to do on the Board of Selectmen.”
