Candidate Biography

From candidate website

Matthew is running for Wisconsin’s 7th District state Assembly seat, which is made up of portions of southwest Milwaukee, Greenfield, West Allis, and West Milwaukee. Matthew offers the Wisconsinites of the 7th District an honest option in the political landscape. An option that values and respects the individual, their rights, and places them in control of their lives. An option that will promote ingenuity and success and not stymie it with taxes and regulations.

Matthew as a law enforcement officer has seen firsthand how the misguided legislation from both parties has hurt the citizens of Milwaukee County. He and the Libertarian Party want to offer a clear path forward, a path for free people to make a free Wisconsin!

Matthew resides in the Jackson Park neighborhood of Milwaukee with his wife (Anna) and three young sons (Liam, Emmett, and Rowan). A graduate of Marian University (Fond Du Lac), he has worked as a police officer and more recently a detective for the Milwaukee Police Department in both patrol and investigative roles for the past 10 years.

Matthew is a member in good standing with the Milwaukee Police Association (MPA) and the Law Enforcement Action Partnership (LEAP). Matthew also serves as the chair of the Fundraising and Membership Committee and is the CD-4 representative (alternate) for the Libertarian Party of Wisconsin. Matthew attends St. Gregory the Great Catholic Parrish (Milwaukee).
