Matt was born and raised in Dubuque, Iowa. Growing up in a working class family, he learned early on the values of empathy, compassion, a strong work ethic, and the desire to always improve the world around him. After graduating high school, Matt began work in the construction trades, where he has spent the last 11 years advancing Iowa's infrastructure and building stronger communities.
Now is the time to put that same hard work in for his community as a senator. Iowans need an ally in the capitol. He will work to improve schools, advocate for public education, create good paying jobs, retain hardworking Iowans in the workforce, and help revitalize rural communities. He's ready to put in the work and build a better Iowa.
