Bring Resources for Empowerment and Success to Our Community.
Our community is growing at a rapid pace. Every session, our legislature allocates resources to communities through our state budget. Year-over-year, our representatives in the house have sat on the outside looking in while others deliver funds and resources to their communities. We deserve a seat at the table and representation that can deliver for our growing community.
Elect Matt and know that his skills will be put to work delivering for the district 1st. People before politics in a way that the community can see, not just some empty promise year after year. It’s time for a change.

“The last nearly three years of COVID have exposed the fragile and cracking infrastructure through our economy and communities. I don’t think any were found to be as weak as our underfunded, understaffed, overworked, and under-appreciated healthcare system. Instead, we made headlines for being a system that is broken and easily exploited. This breakdown didn’t happen during the COVID crisis but over decades of neglect and ethical misappropriation of resources.
My promise to this district is to first and foremost provide a forum where constructive ideas, concerns, solutions, and positions can be quickly and wholly voiced and considered for the betterment of our community.
Our current representation talks in circles and comes back empty-handed after every session.
We deserve representation that works to empower our community and negotiates resources and favorable policy for our community. I provide readiness on day one with skills and experience that have proven to accomplish goals where others have failed.
I will be your voice, advocate, and hammer to build and get things done in Olympia.”
Even More Information
Access to Healthcare
We have a healthcare crisis on our hands. It is so important that we provide services at the right time, place, and amount. t
We can move our health system forward without financial and regulatory barriers.
Filling the Jobs Pipeline
We need to invest in our public schools and build up our technical and skill training pipeline. There are high-quality, good-paying jobs in our community waiting to be filled by workers if they receive the necessary training. Our State Government can provide funding to build these training centers and programs that will empower our people to succeed.
Our transportation system is either aged and failing or impractical for our quickly growing rural communities. We need to point the federal government’s infrastructure dollars to serve our populations now and grow in the right way.
Supporting Businesses and Families
Raising a family is hard enough. We have a moral and financial benefit to helping families thrive.
Let’s get families back to work.
Small Business is the heart of our Economy. Businesses in Washington deserve to thrive.
