Frank says farewell

The Alameda Sun received a copy of this letter.

Dear Alameda community:
Last Tuesday night was my final City Council meeting. Thank you to the voters who gave me this job. I learned a lot these last four years. Being in politics can be exhilarating and it can certainly be humbling. I was privileged to have been part of doing a bit of good for Alameda. 

It’s been great to celebrate some accomplishment, but I do want also to say I am sorry for the times where I did not hit the mark.

I wish nothing but the best to the new Council. It’s important that we keep government open and in clear view of us all. Do the best for the common good and help those most in need. Those are my asks.

Happy Holidays and farewell.

Frank Matarrese
