Meet Mathew (Matt) A. Ingram:
General Background/ Introduction:
Thank you for your time in looking at my campaign site for State Representative for Windham County’s-4th District seat. I moved to Putney, Windham County in 2018 from Bushkill, Pennsylvania, where I grew up for majority of my childhood and adolescent years and is where my family lives still including: my mother, my aunts, my cousin (who is basically a sister), my 4 dogs, and 2 cats. I live on-campus by myself currently while my girlfriend lives in Northern Vermont. I was born in Red Bank New Jersey in 1994. I may be 25 years of age; however, make no mistake, I have experienced and learned many lessons from my personal upbringing, and I know I am the right person for the job! Civil service has always been critical to me and this election allows me to continue my personal mission of serving and helping others! I have a list of tasks I intend to tackle as State Representative; however, my goals and objectives will be always put YOU, the people first! Please see my Vermont of the Future Page for more information.
Please let me know if you have any questions or would like to speak regarding concerns/problems that face YOU! My phone number is (570) 618-0845.
