She was instrumental in obtaining a DOJ grant when she worked with police leadership that helped hire additional police officers.”Matsikoudis is running for mayor against incumbent Steve Fulop in November, and has already announced a number of council candidates. Wintner has been a very vocal critic of this and previous administrations. She previously ran for city council as a Ward B candidate.
