Protecting Your Family. Protecting Your Future. Protecting Our State.



Fueled by a fervent desire to assist those in need, Matt embarked on a firefighter internship in central Oregon immediately after graduating from high school. With nothing but his belongings in his 1976 Datsun pickup, he journeyed to his new residence within a fire station. His time there was marked by invaluable experiences as an emergency medical technician at numerous fatal vehicle accidents and a first responder at one of the largest wildfires in U.S. history. These experiences solidified his passion for aiding others.

Upon completing his internship, Matt furthered his education with a steadfast aim to deepen his medical expertise. As the conflicts in the Middle East intensified, he felt a strong duty to contribute to his country’s efforts and joined the Army, dedicating twelve years of his life to active service and another four years of reserve service thereafter. During his deployments to the Middle East, Matt encountered the harsh realities of combat and the profound impact of U.S. intervention on local populations, from facilitating their first democratic votes to providing essential medical care to children.

After his military service, Matt’s journey continued on a different but equally impactful front. From 2019 to 2023, he served on the Eatonville, WA School Board, playing a pivotal role during the challenging times of the COVID-19 pandemic. Matt skillfully guided the board through these difficulties, balancing public health considerations without infringing on the rights of parents and students. This experience highlighted his ability to navigate complex issues with empathy and integrity, ensuring that education remained a priority even in the face of unprecedented challenges.

Matt continues to serve, currently working as a physician assistant in orthopedic surgery and adjunct professor of natural sciences for the University of Maryland Global Campus. Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, he remained on the front lines as a medical provider, showcasing his dedication to others.

Husband. Father. Family.

For the past 15 years, Matt and his wife Jessica have navigated the ever-changing landscape of 21st-century life. Amidst its turbulent waters, they’ve learned the virtues of patience, compromise, and strategic thinking, essential for resolving challenges successfully. Through their commitment to marriage, Matt discovered the profound importance of meeting the needs of loved ones without compromising personal morals and values. Together, the Marshalls continually adapt to the rigors of parenthood, honing skills in conflict resolution, crisis management, and the crucial art of negotiation and communication within a partnership. These abilities not only foster familial harmony but also contribute to community well-being, aligning with their overarching goal of collective progress. Raising children in an era dominated by technology and media poses ongoing challenges, yet Matt embraces these obstacles with a determined spirit, leveraging his diverse educational background and life experiences to address issues head-on.

Drawing inspiration from his best friend and father figure, Rod—a compassionate leader and community mentor—Matt embarked on numerous adventures, learning invaluable life lessons such as fishing, hunting, survival, and integrity. Described affectionately as a “fixer” by his sisters, Matt’s proactive approach underscores his commitment to resolving any situation that arises.

Concerned about the quality of education within public schools, Matt decided to take action by running for the Eatonville School Board in 2019. While serving, he gleaned invaluable insights, realizing the need for deeper influence in policy-making rather than merely enforcing existing mandates. Matt’s journey underscores his belief in the foundational strength of families as the bedrock of society. By prioritizing their well-being and advocating for policies that support them, he envisions a future where every family in Washington can thrive.

Combat Veteran

Matt Marshall’s military tenure stands as a profound chapter in his life narrative, reflecting unwavering dedication not only to his country but also to the broader ideals of community engagement and participation. Across 16 years—12 active duty and four in the reserves—Matt’s career in the United States Army serves as a testament to his unwavering commitment, leadership, and pursuit of excellence. As a Captain, his responsibilities varied widely, ranging from serving as a battalion surgeon in the Middle East to holding pivotal roles at Joint Base Lewis-McChord (JBLM), and within the esteemed 101st and 82nd Airborne Divisions. His specialized expertise in immunohematology at William Beaumont Army Medical Center in El Paso, TX, underscores his significant contributions to military healthcare.

Marked by dedication and distinction, Matt’s military journey embodies the core values of duty, honor, and country. These values, deeply ingrained during his service, align with his vision of contributing to community welfare and safeguarding the state of Washington. The discipline, leadership, and resilience honed during his military tenure have equipped Matt with a unique perspective on civic engagement and the importance of individual participation in addressing societal challenges.

Transitioning from military to civilian life, Matt’s commitment to aiding others remains steadfast. His experiences have broadened his understanding of how military principles of leadership, teamwork, and sacrifice can inspire positive change within the community. Matt firmly believes that just as a military unit thrives on the collective strength and dedication of its members, so too can a community flourish through active citizen involvement and engagement.

Drawing on his military background, Matt recognizes a direct link between the ethos of serving one’s country and the potential for individuals to contribute to the betterment of their state. He emphasizes the importance of every citizen’s participation in public service, viewing it as crucial to addressing challenges and fostering growth. By advocating for increased community involvement and public engagement, Matt seeks to harness the same spirit of dedication and commitment that defined his military career. He envisions a future where citizens are empowered to collaborate in tackling the state’s issues, fostering unity and purpose in addressing collective challenges.

This dedication to service, shaped by his distinguished military experience, underscores Matt’s approach to leadership. For him, leadership transcends mere policies and politics; it involves embodying values that strengthen communities and states alike. Through his example, Matt aims to inspire a shared passion for service and community involvement, believing that together, Washingtonians can forge a brighter, more prosperous future.


Matt Marshall has dedicated 18 years to healthcare, amassing a wealth of experience and education in the field. He holds a degree in Medical Laboratory Science from George Washington University and a degree in Human Biology from the University of Nebraska Medical Center. Furthering his education, he achieved a Master of Physician Assistant Studies from the University of Nebraska Medical Center. Marshall’s specialization in trauma and burn surgery was honed at Vanderbilt Medical Center.

Currently, Marshall continues to practice medicine, applying his comprehensive skills and knowledge to serve his community. His extensive background in healthcare exemplifies a life dedicated to service, leadership, and compassion, qualities he seeks to bring to his role in the Washington State House District 2, Position 2.  In December 2024, Matt is scheduled to graduate from law school with a Juris Doctorate.   When elected and seated in the legislature, he will serve as the most highly qualified and educated professional to ever hold the Position 2 Representative seat since its establishment.




In Washington, we treasure the rich diversity and strength of our communities, where every individual’s contribution is vital to our collective well-being. At the heart of Matt’s vision for a brighter future are three core commitments: protecting your children, protecting parental rights, and safeguarding the achievements and rights of women. These are not just policies; they’re promises Matt upholds to maintain the values that make our state a beacon of hope and prosperity.

Protecting Your Children and Parental Rights:

Our children are our most precious resource, the bearers of our hopes and dreams for the future. Yet, in our schools today, many parents are concerned that their children are being exposed to materials and ideologies that don’t align with their family’s values, or worse, their children aren’t being prepared for success in the real world. Matt believes in an education system that empowers our children with knowledge and skills, preparing them for a successful future while respecting the values of their families.

  • Matt proposes a return to a curriculum that balances classical education with practical vocational training, ensuring our children are not just book-smart but life-ready.
  • The introduction of a “Parents Bill of Rights” by Matt will empower parents to have a decisive voice in their child’s education, ensuring that family values are respected within the educational system.
  • Through school choice, Matt aims to level the playing field, giving every child, regardless of their background, access to high-quality education. This is about fairness, opportunity, and giving every child a shot at success.

Safeguarding the Achievements and Rights of Women:

The strides made by our mothers, sisters, wives, and daughters over the last fifty years have empowered women and moved us closer to equality in the public and private sectors of society. However, recent policy efforts by the progressive left threaten to undermine these gains, challenging the very essence of womanhood. Matt stands against any notion that diminishes the achievements or the unique identity of our mothers, sisters, wives, and daughters in our society.

  • The legislature must safeguard spaces designed for women’s privacy and safety, ensuring these remain places of dignity and respect. This is common sense, and Matt refuses to accept the notion that men–however they identify–have a right to violate the privacy and safety of women.
  • As the father of three amazing young women, Matt supports policies that maintain fairness and competitiveness in women’s sports, honoring the physical realities and differences between males and females and preserving the spirit of Title IX.
  • Matt’s campaign is committed to amplifying the voices of our mothers, sisters, wives, and daughters in the dialogue on rights and equality, ensuring that the progress made is preserved and advanced in the face of new challenges from out-of-touch progressives in Olympia.

Matt believes in respect, inclusivity, and proactive protection for the rights and well-being of your children, of parents, and all women. It’s a promise from Matt to uphold the values that our community cherishes, to ensure that our educational system empowers students and parents rather than undermines them, and to celebrate and protect the unique contributions and rights of women in our society.



In Washington, the spirit of innovation and the dream of starting one’s own business should be within everyone’s reach. Yet, workers and small businesses often face significant barriers. This can be overcome by eliminating overregulation which stifles our potential for economic growth and innovation. Matt Marshall envisions a future where entrepreneurs and small businesses are the backbone of a thriving economy.

Embracing Economic Freedom:

Matt believes economic prosperity flourishes best in a free-market environment where individuals and businesses operate with minimal government interference. While Matt understands that government has a role in protecting citizens, he believes the Reagan wisdom that,  “less government is better government.”  This approach values personal choice, voluntary exchange, and the critical role of entrepreneurship in driving economic development. Matt’s vision is a Washington where the market dynamically responds to the needs and desires of its people, free from excessive regulation as opposed to the progressive left’s belief that they know how to run our lives better. Economic and personal freedom leave no room for oppressive government mandates and unnecessary intrusion.

Cutting Through Red Tape

Matt is committed to regulatory reform. By removing bureaucratic barriers hindering job growth, worker options, and business creation, we pave the way for a future where workers, small businesses, and startups can thrive. Government should facilitate growth, not be an obstacle.

Lightening the Load

Matt is dedicated to alleviating the burdens that taxes and excessive regulations place on Washingtonians:

  • Reducing the Gas Tax: Families and single parents are being strangled by one of the highest gas taxes in the country. Reducing this tax is key to putting food on the table for hard-working families.
  • Reducing Housing Costs by Reducing Property Tax: Parents shouldn’t have to worry about putting a roof over their children’s heads and seniors should never fear being taxed out of their homes in retirement. Matt is committed to reducing property taxes and regulations that disproportionately affect the less fortunate, ensuring that all residents can afford the essentials for their families.
  • Streamlining Licensing and Fees: Matt aims to cut through the bureaucracy that affects not just businesses but also workers, families, and visitors. Simplifying licensing and reducing fees make it easier for everyone to work, live, and visit Washington.

There's no reason Washington State needs to spend over $1,300,000,000 (that's billion with a 'B') per week to maintain our state operations.

Our government is too large, wasteful, and inefficient.

The progressive Left and big-government’s addiction to tax-and-spend public policy has left the State government bloated and corrupt while leaving Washington taxpayers struggling to pay for basic necessities.



With a steadfast commitment to service and a clear vision for the future, Matt is dedicated to protecting our state, ensuring it remains a beacon of opportunity and prosperity for all Washingtonians. After more than 40 years of one-party rule, our cherished way of life faces unprecedented threats.  From unaffordable living costs and rising crime to challenges against our core values of freedom and prosperity, Matt Marshall recognizes that turning the tide requires not just addressing these symptoms but focusing on the root causes of these challenges for the working class and middle America.

Crime and Safety:

In Washington State, we face a critical juncture in addressing the surge in crime, drugs, homelessness, human trafficking, and a slew of serious issues. Recent reports have highlighted increases in murders, armed robberies, carjackings, and domestic violence, painting an alarming picture of our State’s safety and our future.

Regrettably, the irresponsible progressive left’s response has created a public safety crisis; our State now has the dubious distinction of having the lowest number of law enforcement officers per capita in the Country.

Matt Marshall, with his extensive background in public service—from serving in the military to aiding communities as a medical professional—understands the paramount importance of security and justice. As a dedicated servant to our nation and state, Matt has always stood on the front lines, advocating for safety and support for all individuals.

In his military career, Matt witnessed the dire consequences of lawlessness abroad and the transformative power of security and order. Drawing from these experiences, Matt is committed to revitalizing our law enforcement agencies, ensuring they are fully supported and adequately staffed to protect our communities.

Cost of Living:

The cost of living in Washington is spiraling out of control, with exorbitant gas prices, skyrocketing health insurance, and property taxes, not to mention the escalating cost of food due to inflation. These factors are not just statistics; they represent real hardships for families, small businesses, and individuals considering leaving our great state for more affordable pastures.

The current strategies in Olympia exacerbate these issues, placing undue burdens on our citizens. Matt Marshall’s vision for Washington is one of relief and prosperity. As a proponent of economic freedom and a champion for small businesses, Matt understands that the foundation of a thriving state is an affordable, livable environment for its people.

Jobs and Economy: A Plan for Prosperity

To ignite our state’s economic engine, Matt proposes a three-fold strategy:

  1. Tax Reform: Lowering taxes for individuals and businesses to increase disposable income and incentivize business investment and expansion in Washington.

  2. Regulatory Overhaul: Simplifying regulations to make it easier for new businesses to start and for existing businesses to grow, focusing on sectors with the highest potential for job creation and economic impact.

  3. Innovation and Education: Investing in vocational and technical education programs that align with the needs of Washington’s evolving job market, ensuring a skilled workforce ready to meet the demands of tomorrow’s economy.

Matt’s plan is about creating an environment where businesses can thrive, jobs are plentiful, and the economy grows, supported by a foundation of law and order.

The Rights of Parents and Children:

The future of our children is inseparable from the prosperity of our State. Matt is committed to restoring the influence of parents in the educational system, ensuring their voices are heard and respected in shaping a brighter future for their children. With over 60,000 students not returning to Washington public schools due to a lack of trust, our State faces a public education crisis.

Transparency & Accountability:

Government exists to serve the people, yet too often, it seems our State government has forgotten this fundamental truth. Sadly, many people in Olympia see themselves as masters of the fate of the people they were elected to serve.  This is not public service–it is a form of heavy-handed elitism.  By contrast, Matt Marshall runs on the promise of an open, responsive, and inclusive government, truly representing the voices and welfare of its citizens–each of them.

Under Matt’s leadership, the era of progressive policy and inefficiency will be replaced by a government that listens, acts, and unites. Matt’s approach to leadership is rooted in the belief that listening to constituents, making tough decisions, and genuinely representing all people are the hallmarks of true public service.
