My name is Matt Waters, and I am the only candidate in the race for the U.S. Senate who was born and raised in the great state of Virginia.
My family dates back to 1607, to a place called Jamestown. My grandfather was a welder in the Newport News Shipbuilding Company. My mother graduated from Christopher Newport University and Old Dominion University, and my father graduated from VCU and went on to teach in Hampton for 30 years. I was born in Newport News. I graduated from Hampton High School – home of the Crabbers – and received my undergraduate degree from George Mason University in Fairfax. And today, I am currently finishing a Masters Degree. I have spent over two decades raising money for candidates, ballot initiatives, 501c3 and 501c4 groups, and non-profit organizations. I have been married nearly 20 years to Anne Marie and we have five wonderful kids that we homeschool.
I am running for office because I am concerned about our out of control spending. A $21 trillion dollar debt. An annual $1.5 trillion dollar deficit. A military industrial complex involved around the globe, a weaponized IRS and agencies such as the NSA and FBI that spy on American citizens. An unaccountable Federal Reserve whose policies devalue every dollar we earn. And of course there are the Departments of Agriculture, Health and Human Services, Housing and Urban Development, Commerce, Energy, and Education that can be privatized and put into the marketplace to compete with non-profits and for-profits.
The aim of this campaign is to restore liberty to the people by limiting the size and scope of our federal government.
Thanks for considering my candidacy for the US Senate.
Matt Waters, Libertarian Candidate for U.S. Senate
