Matt Brown on Government Reform

 


America's promise is broken by problems in Washington

Working directly in the community for 10 years, Matt saw that people have extraordinary potential and a tremendous drive to succeed. But too often, they aren't able to reach that potential and live a good life because the basic things people need aren't there anymore - a good school, affordable college, health care. Matt saw that the promise of America was broken.

Matt believes the problem lies in Washington. He believes that the politicians don't work for real change because they are afraid to stand up to the powerful special interest groups who want to keep things the way they are - at the expense of people.

Matt is running for U.S. Senate because he believes we need new leaders with the energy and conviction to stand up to the special interests - no matter how tough the opposition.

$15M for voter list improvements

To improve Rhode Island elections, Matt brought in over $15 million in federal funds from the Help America Vote Act. He used those resources to clean up the voter list - which had over 15,000 errors - and create a state-of-the-art computerized voter registry that now serves as a national model. Last year, Matt also launched RI Troops Vote to make it easier for the men and women serving our country overseas to exercise their right to vote.
