Text Messaging and Robocalls

Keeping Allentown's citizens informed is essential, especially during emergencies and interruptions to daily life. Matt's administration will implement a text messaging and robocalling platform that will alert Allentonians to take necessary action in the event of snow emergencies, utility disruptions, downtown events that affect traffic, and other changes to regular city services. 

Mayor's Walks

It's important to see neighborhoods through the eyes of residents, who spend more time there than anyone else. Matt will convene staff from departments such as public works, parks, community and economic development, police and more to tour neighborhoods across the city in collaboration with neighborhood groups. The walks will present residents an opportunity to show the city what's great about their neighborhoods and what can use improvement.

Open Office Hours

Matt's committed to being the most available mayor that has ever served Allentown. Once a week, Matt will bring the office to the people, working from the lobby of City Hall and from spots around the city, including diners, parks, and other high-traffic places. People will have an opportunity to engage in direct dialogue with the mayor in a comfortable environment.
