It is with profound sadness that the Mental Health Empowerment Project extends our thoughts and deepest condolences to the family, friends and constituents of Albany County Legislator Matthew Peter, who passed away suddenly this week.
Matt’s unexpected departure is especially poignant for us at MHEP, as he recently visited our new home at 204 Second Street. Matt’s genuine concern for the wellbeing of our community was evident in the enthusiasm with which he discussed potential partnerships and initiatives. Matt’s willingness to work collaboratively underscored the importance of unity and collective effort in addressing the unmet needs of our community.
As we mourn the loss of a cherished friend, our thoughts are with Matt’s loved ones as they navigate this incredibly difficult time. May they find solace in the countless memories of a man who championed the underdog and embodied the spirit of servant leadership.
