“I am excited to continue building on the momentum AFP has established here in Oklahoma.  I count myself humbled to join an organization that values the importance of grassroots engagement while standing for the principles of the free market, limited government, and fiscal responsibility. I look forward to reaching out to and working with our grassroots activists, members of the Oklahoma Legislature, and other stakeholders to help bring about public policy change that will make our state more prosperous for our children and grandchildren.”

“While the federal government continues to show disregard for future generations of taxpayers with its reckless tax-and-spend policies, the state of Oklahoma has an opportunity to set itself apart by continuing to move in a different direction: one of lower taxes, less regulation, and harnessing the power of the free market to solve the problems of the day.”

Former state director Stuart Jolly shared his excitement with Matt’s plans for the chapter.

“I am excited that Matt has been hired as the new Oklahoma State Director of Americans for Prosperity,” said Stuart Jolly, former State Director for AFP-OK.  “Matt’s knowledge of state and federal policy, his ability to engage and mobilize grassroots activists to affect change, and his dedication to the principles upon which AFP was founded will make him an excellent leader for the Oklahoma chapter.”   

“Matt and I have had several conversations regarding his plans for the future of AFP-OK,” Jolly said.  “He will bring fresh energy and a renewed vision to the 24,000 members of AFP-OK.”

Matt formerly worked for Senator Tom Coburn and is a graduate of Oklahoma State University.
