Mass Alliance was happy to endorse Matt Patrick in his run for the Third Barnstable District House Seat.



After moving to Falmouth in 1980 to start a family with his wife, Louise, Matt started his own solar panel installation business and volunteered to lead several environmental and preservation efforts on Cape Cod around the Waquoit Bay area and beyond. He was instrumental in the passage of the Cape Cod Commission Act and the acquisition of open space to preserve and protect the Quashnet River in Falmouth and Mashpee. In his professional life, he directed the non-profit energy advocacy and loan organization, Self-Reliance and was elected first as a Falmouth Town Meeting Representative and later a two term Falmouth Selectman, serving as Chairman of the Board for one year.



In 2001, Matt was elected as the 3rd Barnstable District’s State Representative, an office through which he served for 10 years. During that time, he was the sponsor of legislation to help grow the clean energy opportunities for people all across the Commonwealth, spur economic growth for local businesses, support public health and safety and increase the value of his district. Matt still lives in Waquoit and is still involved in the community.



Regrettably, Matt lost this rematch against incumbent David Vieira in a 12,474 to 11,297 decision.
