Hi everyone! My name is Matt and this is my blog. I’m from the Appalachian mountains of Southwest Virginia. For the last five years I have been involved in various community issues working on numerous progressive political campaigns, issue-initiatives, and various other causes. This is home and I love it, but there’s a lot that needs to be fixed here. I like trying to help fix those issues in whatever small way I can. I also like to write and let others know what’s going on here, the problems we face, and my thoughts on how to help solve those problems. My name is Matt and this is my blog.
