Dear Neighbor:

I am honored to be serving you on the Belmont City Council to champion and maintain the quality of life services you expect and deserve.

My family and I have lived in Belmont since 2006. We were attracted to all the things that make our small-town quality of life special: our local hills and trails, the excellent schools, and the safe neighborhoods, and most importantly, our city's most celebrated asset -- the people who live here.

My passion for Belmont inspired me to serve you as Chair of the Planning Commission during an exciting and challenging time for our city, engaging the community in updating our vision to guide Belmont's future for the next few decades, with the goal of maintaining our unique character and enhancing our quality of life. Having raised my three children in Belmont, I understand the rewards and challenges that come with living, raising a family, and doing business here.

As your City Councilmember, I bring passion, hard work, sound judgment, and experience to our special city.

Please continue to check this website for community updates and more information about my vision and priorities for Belmont. I am incredibly humbled by the outpouring of ideas and support since my appointment to the Council - and I invite you to join my growing coalition of colleagues and Belmont residents who believe in my leadership and support my election this fall.

I look forward to working with and hearing from you!

If I can assist you in any way, please email me at

Julia E. Mates

Belmont City Councilmember
Working for You!
