Nick Matthews Campaign
ARCATA – Nick Matthews has been a longstanding member of the Arcata community in several different capacities. He has owned one of Arcata’s oldest businesses for 24 years and has just stepped down as its primary owner.
Being an Arcata business owner has made it possible for Nick to be involved in many ways in Arcata’s community. Nick is currently an Arcata Main Street board member and has donated his time with AMS off and on for many years.
Arcata has a very special place in Nick’s heart and is a place that he and his family are proud to call their home.
Nick currently has three children that are in the Arcata school system ranging from fifth to 11th grades. Nick and his wife, along with many other parents in our country, are doing their best to navigate through these current pandemic times and he has a vested interest in the necessity of a safe learning experience for their children.
Nick is a strong believer in parent participation and has participated in his children’s interests over the years. Nick was proud to serve as Arcata’s BSA Pack 95’s Pack leader for four years and as Mckinleyvilles Troop 99’s assistant Scout Master another two years.
Nick also enjoyed being an assistant youth football AA coach for two years in Arcata as well as Eureka’s youth AAA team for an additional two more years.
Nick Matthews has deep roots in our local community and has a strong network of friends and family living in our area.
These are unprecedented times in Arcata and he feels that Arcata needs strong, level headed leaders moving forward during these very difficult and unpredictable times. Nick Matthews is such a leader.
