MATT LOTANO For Councilman-at-Large
Matthew Lotano is a dedicated father, husband, volunteer, and business owner. He is a graduate of Toms River High School North and Wagner College. Matthew and his lovely wife, Melissa, were proudly raised in Toms River and are continuing in that tradition by raising their two children, Elle Charlie (age 9 at Washington Street Elementary) and Jackson Fox (age 4 at Westminster Nursery School) in the hometown they both love so much.
Over the last thirty years, Lotano Development, Inc. has focused on custom home construction, rebuilding and restoring distressed and neglected commercial and residential properties, and property management. Raised on his father’s job sites, it was only natural for Matt to build his career on that steady foundation. Matthew is responsible for leading teams of subcontractors, developing project plans, and executing on budgets in order to provide a second-to-none customer experience.
Matthew’s responsibilities as a property and project manager and his daily interactions with tenants, homeowners, and small business in Toms River have provided him with valuable insights into our community’s needs and concerns.
Matthew’s desire to represent Toms River is a very personal one. As a father, he feels a responsibility to elevate Toms River into a town where young families want to move for its schools, strong community, and quality of life. He brings a forward-thinking attitude and enthusiasm to all aspects of life. As a volunteer and member of committees within our town he sees how passionate and dedicated our community is and that he is not alone in loving Toms River.
