Matt Fyfe is a life-long Hoosier, teacher, and Christian raising a middle class family.
At a time when many Americans feel disheartened by politics, I want to thank you for taking the time to learn about this campaign. Together, we can ensure our representatives understand our hopes, struggles, and the everyday issues that affect Southern Indiana Hoosiers.
As a teacher, I’ve spent my life working to improve our community. I’ve done my best to meet students and families where they are, make them feel valued in and out of the classroom, and give them the opportunity to succeed. I’m running for Congress to bring these same principles to Washington. I want to listen to members of our community. I want to engage with people about the actual issues that impact Southern Indiana. I want to fight for common sense solutions.
As a middle-class Hoosier, I know the importance of good jobs. We must invest in education and infrastructure to keep the good jobs we have and bring more of them to Southern Indiana in the future. As a father of three, I know how hard it is to find decent childcare that fits in the family budget. As someone who has watched close family and friends struggle with addiction, mental health, and unexpected emergencies, I know accessible healthcare is a major issue that needs addressed now. As a leader within my teachers union, I know the importance of working together to advocate for change.
If you agree that our representatives aren’t listening to these needs or seeking real solutions, join me. If you think we need a more responsive government to everybody, not just those in power, reach out and learn how your passion and skills can make a difference in this campaign. There are many ways to help, big and small, and every act matters. I’m a public servant who understands our struggles because I live them. I want to go to DC to help our neighbors in Southern Indiana.
This campaign is about our community, for a change.
