Tyrone to settle Post 3 race Tuesday

The time has come for Tyrone voters to have their say in the race for the Post 3 seat on the Tyrone Town Council.

Voters on Nov. 5 will choose between incumbent Councilman Ken Matthews and challenger Pota Coston.

Matthews, a disabled veteran raised in the Tyrone area, served on the Tyrone Planning Commission, the Tyrone Founders’ Day committee, is past president of the Rotary Club of Fayette Daybeak and works as a part-time Realtor.

“I envision seeing Tyrone progress in the future while maintaining the charm and beauty of a small town,” Matthews said.

Coston is a consultant and law enforcement retiree. Coston in 2011 received 41 percent of the vote in an unsuccessful run for the Post 2 seat. She provides services to the non-profit youth development organization AVPRIDE, is a member of the Fayette County Ethics Board, the Tyrone Founders’ Day committee and serves with the Virgil Fludd Scholarship Foundation.

“Tyrone is special, has a rich history and we can’t lose that,” Coston said.
