Steven Matteo was elected to represent the Mid-Island-based 50th City Council District in November 2013, after a decade of public service. He was elected as Minority Leader of the Council in July 2015.

Focusing on improving the quality of life and providing better government services for his constituents, Matteo has had many accomplishments since early in his first term, including: passing the Alternative Veterans Property Tax Exemption, which significantly increases property tax relief for those who have served in the military and their families; landmark legislation that provides lifesaving Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs) and training to thousands of little league teams in the city free of charge; working with the Department of Sanitation to create the city’s first eWaste curbside collection program for Staten Island, which has since been made permanent and is expanding citywide with over 100,000 units collected as of August 2019; collaborating with his colleagues to secure an additional $241 million to repair the city’s crumbling roads; creating a West Shore Industrial Business Improvement District (BID) and New Dorp BID and several local merchant groups to help spur economic development in the borough; securing funding for a borough ‘Clean Team’ and spearheading efforts to remove litter and debris on Staten Island and across the city;
