In an interview with The Miami Herald, Matt Morgan spoke about why heís decided to run for District 4 Commissioner in Longwood, Florida (Seminole County). Here are highlights:

On why heís running for office: ďEnough of the citizens over the last five years have been asking me to run. That combined with giving back to all these other cities during my career, I wanted to do it with my own city and take it where it needs to be. As a commissioner, you have an opportunity to have somewhat of a say by doing the job of listening to the people. They have gotten away from that. Not all commissioners, but my opponent for sure has. You need a non-politician in office. Thatís what we need. Someone who can keep these guys straight. Somebody whose vote canít be bought. Someone whose vote canít be swayed. You can have your own ideas. Iím not saying you donít, but your job is to be the vehicle for the citizens and their opinions and see what their opinions are and then vote on their behalf. Itís the citizenís opinions.Ē

On why he thinks he will be successful: Just like me as a pro wrestler. The argument I get is that I was successful as a pro wrestler because Iím 7-feet, 300 pounds. I can see that getting me in the door, but what always made me successful was the ability to outwork people. Whether it was in the gym, my dieting, cutting promos in the mirror every day I would wake up early in my career. Whatever it took to outwork people. I have a certain work ethic. All Iím doing is taking that over to this. School was the same way. Itís the one thing you can control in life. You can control how hard you work at something. Once it started raining my campaign manager asked me to get out of there because he couldnít risk me being sick knocking on doors the next day. I responded, ĎEven if I do get sick, Iíll work on through it.í I did catch a cold, but I still worked the next two days knocking on doors. It was to show the citizens there is nothing I wonít do for them.Ē
