Hello, and welcome to the official web site for Champaign City Council member Matthew Gladney!

 

I began this web site while running for one of three at-large (citywide) seats on the Champaign City Council.

 

Elected to the city council in April 2015, and re-elected in April 2019, it is an honor serving the people of Champaign.

 

Please feel free to look around, and I hope to earn your support.
