Mayor Matas has always been a friend and ally of the LGBTQ+ Community in Desert Hot Springs, not because he seeks our votes, but more importantly he truly respects our fight for equal and human rights Success comes with teamwork. Mayor Matas can count on us and we can count on him. As the 7th fastest LGBTQ city in the State of California, having Scott Matas as our leader is vital for the future of the Pride of Desert Hot Springs. I am proud to endorse him for another four years as our city's Mayor and I strongly encourage you to vote for him, too.
