Campaign themes

  • Jobs

Excerpt: "As a small businessman, Matt has long been a job producer in the local economy for years. As delegate, he will apply the same common sense principles that he has learned in the private sector. He has firsthand knowledge of how stifling government regulations inhibit job creation. While in Richmond, Matt will work tirelessly to remove government obstacles to economic growth and will strive to ensure that job producers are rewarded and welcomed in our commonwealth."

  • Abortion

Excerpt: "Matt believes that there is no more sacred right guaranteed to our citizens than the right to life. Beling raised with a mentally challenged uncle, Matt is all the more aware that ALL life is precious. In the House of Delegates, Matt will be a vigorous defender of the unborn. Throughout his time in office, Matt will author, support, and vote for any legislation that will protect life. Recognizing also that the value of life must be first and foremost in our society, Matt also believes that capital punishment is appropriate for those who take life."

  • Taxes and Spending

Excerpt: "Matt understands that there is nothing that strangles economic development like excessive taxation. He is a firm believer that the commonwealth taxes too heavily and spends too wastefully. As delegate, "he will cut the fat" from Virginia's budget and fight against tax increases. Matt will be an ardent spokesman for Virginia's families and businesses that are over-taxed while also fighting to ensure that tax dollars are spent in the most effective manner."

  • Marriage

Excerpt: "Matt is firmly opposed to any attempt to undermine traditional marriage through recognition of same sex couples. As delegate, he will oppose any effort on the state or local level to allow for marriage, partnership benefits, or recognition. Matt will work diligently to ensure that what has happened in New York and elsewhere will never happen in Virginia. He will be a constant and staunch ally of traditional marriage and the belief that such unions and recognition should only ever be between one man and one woman."
