Matthew Hess

Douglas Commissioner 2, Colorado

Election Date: July 6, 2012



About the Candidate: 

Matthew writes, “I was born in Wisconsin, raised in Fort Wayne, Indiana and attended college in Evansville. I have been a resident of Colorado since 1998, currently reside in Littleton and work for a small business that makes software for construction companies. My career as a technologist has taken me across the spectrum of computer technology as a system administrator, programmer and network engineer. This experience uniquely positions me to be knowledgeable in regard to votes on national technology issues and bills such as SOPA, PIPA and other threats to technology and the people’s privacy and rights. I received the Presidential Volunteer Service award in 2011 for my work with local Cub Scout packs and Boy Scout troops in Aurora. As a former longtime Republican I have become disenfranchised with the two party system and have entered the race as a Libertarian because it more accurately reflects my belief in small cost-effective government and the unalienable rights of citizens.”
