Matt Bradford is serving his first term in the Pennsylvania House of Representatives.  
 
Matt distinguished himself as municipal administrator and chief executive officer of Norristown Borough, where he worked to steer the financially distressed community away from bankruptcy. As a result of uncovering hundreds of thousands of dollars of waste, fraud and abuse, as well as from debt restructuring and contract concessions, Norristown – after nearly a decade of red ink – has seen a return to balanced budgets, a tremendous increase in public and private investment, and massive improvements in public services.
 
Matt also served as Chief of Staff to former Congressman and current County Commissioner Joe Hoeffel.  He is a past member of the United Steel Workers Union.
