    "Matichak is a good listener and has a talent for bringing focus to complex issues. She has more than 10 years’ experience dealing with the predominant subject of land use as a member of the council and the city’s environmental planning commission."
  • Mercury News
    "Mountain View needs experienced hands on the City Council to to help McCarthy and staff deal with the challenges.
    Matichak supports building housing in the North Bayshore and East Whisman areas, but only if there are sufficient retail stores and parks within walking distance to complete the neighborhoods. She has taken a conservative approach to finances, helping the city build reserves that could help Mountain View navigate the pandemic.
    Matichak supported investing in a three-year sustainability program that puts the city on the path to meeting its carbon emission reduction goals. She is well-versed on land-use issues, having served on the Environmental Planning Commission from 2010-16.
    We recommend Abe-Koga, Matichak, Showalter and Gutierrez."
