Matt Rodrigues is a proud resident of Kitchener and is passionate about building a great community, listening to one another, and leading with purpose.

Matt spent years visiting Waterloo Region as a child and always felt a connection to the urban-rural dynamic and strong sense of community. As a student at the University of Waterloo, Matt quickly fell in love with all that a growing Waterloo Region had to offer, and often would be found riding the bus to Kitchener to explore a new store or spend an afternoon at a coffee shop.
