Political Beliefs

Political Philosophy

As a former High School coach, Matthew has understanding and empathy to support our educators. As a government contracted subject-matter-expert in counter-terrorism and force-protection, he will provide crucial insight into the security concerns facing our campuses, and the dangers our students face, both internally and externally. As a small business owner, and member of the PTA, Matthew understands how to work with limited budgets, how to watch every dollar, and yet not to lose sight of what is important – the development and growth of our students - and the sucess of our district. The success of the district relates to the value of our homes and our ability to attract top students. As a parent, Matthew Brach knows that we must trust and work together, to achieve our goals.
