MEET KRYSTLE MATTHEWS
Matthews ran for her first office in 2018, not knowing anyone in politics on either side. She knew that she wanted to represent working folks that may not have been groomed or versed in politics but were very much frustrated with the current political climate.
Matthews, 41, believes that young adults, minorities, women, and working families are the backbone of our state. She was inspired to run for office because she believes that people who look like her and come from backgrounds like hers are often affected the most and heard the least.
At the Statehouse, she has been a champion for women and girls, veteran’s issues, economic development, and infrastructure.
