Matthew was re-elected to Alton Town Council to represent Alton Westbrooke on 7th May 2015. At that time he said, "I have worked hard to drive progress on the many issues facing our town and ward. For example, I have championed the extension to the 20 mph zone in the centre of town and I am pleased to say this looks set to be implemented. There are many key projects currently affecting our town – the Sport Centre and Coors brewery being two - and I will use my experience of the last 4 years to help steer these to a successful conclusion."
