In just a few weeks, Longwood residents will see two-time tag team world champion Matt Morgan canvassing neighborhoods for the upcoming District 4 election.

Morgan, who spent over a decade wrestling all over the world, now works as a territory manager for a medical device company.

Standing at an impressive 7 feet tall, the former TNA / Impact wrestler was motivated to take a shot public office after becoming concerned over potholes and damage to the roads around his neighborhood.

Mark Weller, the current City Commissioner for District 4, was elected in 2014. To date, Weller’s time in elected office has not produced a landmark accomplishment.

The election is non-partisan and will be held on November 7th, just a few months away.

“I’ve never been the type to sit back and armchair quarterback or just complain about things, I’m the type that goes out and gets things done instead. And the love I have for my city, my fellow neighbors, I feel it’s my duty to step up and finally start DOING what needs to be done here in this beautiful city,” Morgan told the Central Florida Post.

He continued by explaining that raising his three year old son in a city that he would eventually want to raise his kids in was another reason he decided to run.

“I want to be the voice of the voiceless. We all want Longwood to be as beautiful and safe as possible.”

The Central Florida Post will provide continuing coverage on this race and others through 2018.
