City of Akron Press Release
Published: 09-16-2016

Akron, Ohio, Sept. 16, 2016

“Matt Contessa was a devoted man who served the City of Akron and United Rubber Workers Union with distinction.

His loyalties to friends, along with his due diligence regarding fair treatment for all, were the themes of his life’s work. These principles were obvious throughout his tenure as Deputy Mayor for Labor Relations. He was passionate about all issues affecting the working people of this community and maintained transparency at all times.

Along with many others, Matt was instrumental in helping me choose a career in elected service. While we didn’t agree on everything, he remained a true friend for more than 25 years. His passing is a loss to our community, including his union brothers and sisters, his spiritual community at St. Anthony Catholic Church and many friends. I offer my prayers and support to his family.”
