Vernon Matthews sees himself more like a minster, in which he feels that his words and actions in the public and in the community should match his words, which is the total opposite of what a politician is. “A politician is a person that says what needs to be said, does what needs to be done to get votes in order to have power, regardless if it is all lies, or if it is not true”, said Vernon Matthews in an exclusive interview.

He also added that, “Being a public servant is about being transparent, visible, and accessible. Its about serving. Which is what a minister does, he/she serves the people.”

Vernon Matthews is recognized by many as the first legitimate Black or African-American candidate to run for mayor in Waterbury, CT. Vernon Matthews would like to make history by becoming the first Black or African-American mayor of Waterbury, CT.
