As a lifelong resident of Southern Maryland, I understand the challenges and opportunities our local community faces.  I am not a career politician.  I am an ordinary citizen with good business experience, strong financial skills, and most importantly common sense.  I believe that government has become too involved in our everyday lives.  I believe that high taxes and fees, burdensome regulations, and big government programs take money out of your hands and put it in the hands of bureaucrats.  And I believe that economic anxiety and the micro-management of our lives is holding Maryland back.

As your representative, I will fight to pass legislation that will help Maryland families, to stop legislation that would further erode our freedoms and to reverse flawed legislation that burdens Maryland’s businesses, farms and families. My platform centers on ideas to:

  • Spur economic growth without reliance on increased taxes.  Roll back recent tax increases and implement sensible tax policies, so you can keep more of your hard-earned money.
  • Create a competitive business environment needed to create jobs.  Reduce burdensome, unnecessary regulations and increase competitiveness by reducing corporate tax rates allowing businesses to succeed in Maryland.
  • Preserve and protect our personal rights, our farms, our real property rights and our quality of life.  Repeal SB-281, protect private property ownership rights, and ensure a successful educational environment for our students so that citizens want to stay in Maryland.

Solutions are possible that can ensure St. Mary's County remains a place where families can prosper and businesses can thrive. I hope that my proven track record of fighting for conservative causes in St. Mary's County helps to solidify your support.   

If I have your vote – thank you.  If I don’t, please give me the opportunity to win your vote – feel free to send me an email or call; I would be happy to talk to you about the issues.  I am also making my way around the county door-knocking, so I hope to run into you this spring.

Thank you for your consideration,

Matt
