Candidate for Sturt
Matt was born raised in and around Sturt. He's unashamedly progressive and driven by his commitment to equality and social justice.
For MAtt fairness, equality and prosperity for all aren’t just slogans, they are ideals he has spent my whole life fighting for — as a union delegate, a community volunteer, a local councillor and as a leader in the South Australian same-sex movement, having played a pivotal role in the push for LGBTIQ rights in South Australia.
Matt will fight for the people of Sturt — for the jobs of the future, a better deal for first home buyers, an education that everyone can afford, a world-class health system, marriage equality and a serious plan to tackle climate change.
Matt’s father and his brother are both truck drivers, his father having spent 10 years as an organiser for the Transport Workers Union working to improve worker and community safety.
