Asking for your vote on Election Day

  As your Ward 4 City Councillor, I had to learn who to go to for advice and guidance, so that I could find solutions to the problems in our neighborhood. You identified the infrastructure in Ward 4 as our biggest challenge. Roads, sidewalks, lead pipes, and dangerous gas lines.

  I partnered with City and State officials to remove over 1,000 lead water pipes and install new safer gas lines across our neighborhood. The dangerous infrastructure under our roads was overlooked for well over 25+ years. Many of you remember when a house exploded on Autumn Street because of such neglect. More recently, there was a gas explosion at Main and Florence Street. Replacing water and gas lines took the top priority. Safety first.

  Once completed, many miles of roads were paved and many more are in the pipeline. Many of these roads were repaved at no cost to the City of Malden because the DPW and I negotiated with utility companies to repave these roads after they replaced their infrastructure. Collaboration and effectiveness at work.

  As a former Park Ranger, I am also a steward of the environment and Malden’s cultural landmarks. I have fought to protect and preserve our parks, historic assets, and natural resources like the Malden River. Together, we have made immense strides towards preserving our historic buildings and preserving our natural green space. I have also listened to your concerns on large residential development and no large residential project has been approved by the City Council since I joined in 2016. Instead, I have focused on bringing new commercial projects to Malden which will bring permanent jobs to Malden and grow our local economy. Our goal is 2,500 new jobs by 2025.

  I have a proved track record of getting things done for our community. Most importantly, I make sure that the job gets done correctly and safely. Actions speak louder than words.

  Let’s continue moving Malden forward, together!

  I respectfully ask for your vote on next Tuesday, November 2nd,

  Ryan O’Malley

  City Councillor Ward 4
