Reason for Seeking Public Office:
Matthew's father often said, "You don't respect the value of a dollar until you worked for it. It's easy to spend other people's money, but when you earn your own money, you buy things you need, not things you want." Matthew has always lived his life knowing the value of hard work and what it is like to own and operate a business in Connecticut. He is the working class. and is for the working class of Connecticut. His desire to secure jobs for Connecticut residents is a driving force behind his decision to run for Congress. "I love the state of Connecticut. It's my home and I care about the people that live here. It's time we invest in this great state and drive business growth, keep healthcare costs down, defend our nation, educate our youth, keep our promises to our veterans, and stimulate the economy."
