​​​​Mayor Linda Mattingly

Linda.jpgI was born in Nelson County & grew up in the New Hope area. I attended St. Catherine High School & graduated in 1964. I married Fred Mattingly in 1965 & moved to New Haven. We were married for 55 years until his passing in 2020. We had two sons, Scott (deceased) & Greg. I came to work for the City of New Haven in 1988 as a City Clerk/ Treasurer. I worked for the city for 27 years and retired in 2015. I was appointed City Commissioner in 2019 to fill in a vacant position and ran for another term serving until 2022. I wanted to continue my involvement with the community, so I  decided to run as Mayor. New Haven is a wonderful small city & a great place to call home!

Message from Fred -  I believe in my community as all residents should.  Never be afraid to be involved in community projects. I'm not afraid to ask for help with projects, so be ready for that call. There are several projects that can be done in New Haven with your help. Meeting attendance is important in a small community. Please get involved…don't let the opportunities pass…. take advantage of them.

I was married 52 years and I have 2 children and 4 grandchildren. We lived in the country and after my husband passed, I decided to move to town so I would be close to people and be able to walk and get what I needed if I had to. I hope to be a part of making the town grow and bring more revenue to our community. Come to our meetings to stay informed.  Meetings are held on the 3rd Thursday of the month at 5:00pm at City Hall.   As one of your commissioners, I hope to work for the people and the town in a cohesive manner.  Lois is the department head over the Police Department.
