PWR Features ‘State of the Cities’ with Mayors Matt Rahn & Jonathan Ingram

Temecula Mayor Matt Rahn  Dr. Matt Rahn has over twenty years’ experience in higher education and university research, and as a land use and policy professional. He received his Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees from the University of Nevada Reno, his Ph.D. from UC Davis, and his law degree from the University of San Diego.

Matt has a unique background that brings a valuable perspective and insight to the City.

Matt began working in the City of Temecula in early 2000, ultimately engaging in some of the largest most consequential projects in our region. In 2005, he began representing San Diego State University in alliance with the City of Temecula, in the long seven-year battle over the Liberty Quarry. He has also worked on projects that have improved our infrastructure, increased our regional energy independence, improved our air quality, and enhanced our overall quality of life.
