About

Matt Waters 1From Candidate Site

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 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 my Masters Degree from Reformed Theological Seminary in McLean.

I have spent over two decades raising money for candidates, ballot initiatives, c3 and c4 group, and non-profit organizations. In the past I have worked with the Institute for Humane Studies and today I work with the organization Students For Liberty in Washington, D.C.

I have been married nearly 20 years to Anne Marie and we have five wonderful kids that we homeschool. Today we are joined by millions of other parents who have decided that they know how to educate their own children better than the Washington bureaucracy.

I support returning education to the parents and the states, for it is too precious to be left to the Federal Government.

Our time is now. Our time has come.

I am running for office to present an alternative to the status quo. I am here because I share the concern of most Americans: the fear and concern about government. 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 other non-profits and for-profits.

My campaign seeks revolutionary change in our government. My aim is to restore liberty to the people by limiting the size and scope of our federal government and eliminating the federal income tax.
