As our economy is entering a recession, and inflation having reached a 40-year high as things like gas, groceries, and housing are more expensive for everyone, Julia Brownley voted to raise taxes by about $1 trillion dollars on American workers and businesses.
At a time of runaway inflation, Julia Brownley voted for a bill that spends hundreds of billions of dollars and could double the size of the IRS and hire as many as 87,000 more agents to audit taxpayers. This could make the IRS bigger than the Pentagon, the State Department, the FBI, and the Border Patrol combined.
Julia Brownley has been in public office for approximately 28 years, but has voted on the wrong side of working families. She’s repeatedly voted to raise taxes on American workers, and she supports reckless government spending that’s causing the highest inflation in 40-years, causing food prices and housing to get more expensive.
As the grandson of a World War II veteran and two Holocaust survivors who came to this country as refugees, Matt has always been deeply proud and grateful to be an American.
That pride and gratitude led Matt to pursue a career as a federal prosecutor, where he investigated and prosecuted some of America’s worst enemies and most dangerous criminals – including al-Qaeda terrorists, child sex traffickers, mafia bosses, street gang members, opioid traffickers and many others. For his success in protecting our country and communities, Matt earned “Prosecutor of the Year” and “True American Hero” awards from national law enforcement organizations.
Born and raised in Ventura County, Matt attended Conejo Valley public schools and was valedictorian of his Thousand Oaks High School class. He went to UCLA on an academic scholarship (graduating in the top 1% of his class) before earning a master’s degree in public affairs from Princeton and a law degree from NYU.
Matt learned the importance of service from his mom, a third-grade teacher. He learned the value of hard work watching his dad build a small business from scratch.
Matt and his wife Julie are blessed to be the parents of Benjamin, Alexander, and Abigail. They live in Westlake Village, just miles from Matt’s childhood home in Thousand Oaks.
Like his grandparents and so many others who’ve come to this country in search of freedom and opportunity, Matt is a passionate believer in the American Dream. As your Congressman, Matt will fight to make sure our neighborhoods are safe, our economy is strong, and our schools are world-class so that everyone in our community has the opportunity to make their American Dream a reality.
