Rare is the person in any profession who embodies both impeccable ethics and unquestionable effectiveness. Matt is that rare person. After five years of knowing and working closely with him, I can attest to both of these qualities. He is resourceful and knowledgeable about the legislative process, and he mindfully advocates for creation of good policy solutions for all even as he vigorously works on behalf of his clients’ objectives. Proof of this is best illustrated in Virginia’s first-in-the-nation Computer Science K-12 education legislation. His knowledge of legislative procedure, his creativity and his dogged commitment more than once rescued this important legislation, and helped steer it to unanimous passage. Matt helped turn indigestion-inducing legislative sausage into Grade-A steak.
