Meet Matt

Legislative Accomplishments

U.S. House of Representatives Candidate Matt Mossburg is no stranger to advocating for the rights and perspectives of all Marylanders.  As a former business owner and state delegate, Mr. Mossburg understands first-hand the challenges and opportunities faced by citizens and businesses in the 6th Congressional District.  From 1995-99, former Del. Mossburg worked across the aisle to assist families in paying for college, reducing income taxes and creating a better environment for business in Maryland.

Mr. Mossburg served a number of committees, including the Economic Matters Committee, the Appropriations Committee, the Commerce and Government Matters Committee, and the Special Joint Committee on Competitive Taxation and Economic Development.  As a state legislator, he partnered with colleagues across the aisle to establish the Maryland Pre-Paid Tuition Savings Program, the now very successful and popular 529 College Savings Programs.

Fighting Opioid Abuse 

Most recently, he provided critical testimony during the 2017 session of the Maryland General Assembly, ensuring passage of Governor Larry Hogan’s package of bills to combat the opioid crisis. It is Matt’s personal experiences that have fueled his desire to re-enter the political arena. After struggles with drug and alcohol addiction, he is passionate about changing the narrative that surrounds addiction, and making practical, effective treatment options available to the millions affected by the opioid crisis.

Professional / Personal Experience

Following his tenure in the Legislature, Matt worked as a Senior Director for the National Association of Manufacturers, passionately advocating for the backbone of American industry. But it was Matt’s successful work in the State Legislature that expanded opportunities for individuals and businesses in the state of Maryland, specifically assisting families to pay for college, reduce taxes for Maryland’s families and create a stronger business climate.

In his spare time, Matt volunteers at the Fredrick Rescue Mission, a faith-centered residential recovery program that provides clothing, practical assistance and hope to those who face poverty, chemical addiction, and homelessness.  He is also an active member and volunteer for Celebrate Recovery, a Christ-centered recovery program with groups nationwide.

Matt holds a Bachelor of Science degree in economics from Georgetown University.

His Story of Recovery

Please take a few minutes to watch three videos describing Matt’s vision for the campaign and his desire to give hope to others. Matt discusses his addiction, recalls hitting bottom, remembers a breakthrough that gave him hope to move forward, and describes how his story has already helped thousands of Marylanders.

Matt's Story Part 1

Matt's Story Part 1

Matt's Story Part 1


"Principle: A fundamental truth or proposition that serves as the foundation for a system of belief or behavior or for a chain of reasoning.”

Matt believes true leadership is not about a personality; it is characterized by decision-making based on fundamental beliefs that inspire action and motivate change "to form a more perfect Union." In today's political environment, Matt's commitment to our Nation's founding principles, coupled with his personal style of civility, humility and respect for all will bring a welcomed change to the current climate in Washington, D.C. Matt takes these principles to heart, that:

  • All people are created equal, with certain rights; life, liberty and the
    pursuit of happiness;
  • Leadership should always be for and by the people;
  • Government should protect individual rights and freedoms;
  • No one, regardless of position or authority, is above the law; and
  • It is important to maintain the balance of power, among the states and the federal government and between all three branches of government.

Addiction & Recovery Resources

These are just a few of the resources that Matt personally recommends. Please contact us if you would like additional assistance.  Be assured that anything you share with Matt will be kept confidential.

And, if you're a local addiction recovery service provider or support organization, please know that we would love to consider partnering with you to reach the residents of the 6th Congressional District.

Let us know how we can help.

Business Attraction & Job Creation


Economic opportunities are critical for the state in light of the growing national and global economy. Attracting businesses and creating jobs benefits Maryland's economy and our families. Doing so requires a strong commitment to transportation, infrastructure investment and ensuring employers have access to the most trained, best-educated workforce.

As a former Senior Director at the National Association of Manufacturers, Matt has the insights, knowledge and real-world experience to advance policies that will grow our economy and bring good paying jobs to the district.

Crime & Gang Violence

S-13's increasing presence in the 6th District has contributed to a growing drug and crime problem in the region.  We must ensure law enforcement and first responders, who are often on the front lines, have the appropriate tools and resources necessary to keep our streets, communities, and families safe and drug-free. Strong families and support networks go a long way in helping young people develop a healthy sense of identity and belonging.  Families, young people and communities also need support in developing and identifying meaningful alternatives to gang involvement.

Health & Mental Health Care

Access to quality health care, including mental health services, is an essential component to living, working and contributing to our communities. Matt recognizes there is often a connection between mental health conditions and drug and alcohol addiction.  As such, as your Congressman, Matt will seek to ensure that individuals and families, including the state's most vulnerable, can obtain the most comprehensive coverage at the lowest cost.


We are a nation built on vision and dedication of immigrants. But for too long, the debate on immigration has been short-sighted and reactionary. As a result of the devastating terrorist attacks on 9/11 and other events, as well as an increased attention given to crimes committed by undocumented immigrants, our policies have become convoluted and confusing. Matt believes we need a broad, comprehensive approach to immigration reform that welcomes those into our country who are seeking freedom and opportunity, share our values, and contribute to our economy, while simultaneously protecting the rule of law.

Opioid Epidemic

Matt knows first-hand the devastating effects of addiction. In active recovery himself for prescription opioid addiction, he knows this is not an issue that can or will be solved by soundbite solutions. His three-point comprehensive plan to address the opioid epidemic includes the following elements:

  • Immediate in-patient placement for those seeking assistance;
  • Long-term, sober living environments that provide people the time, tools and resources to live out an active recovery; and
  • Peer-to-Peer Networks that allow those who have overcome addiction to build a strong network and give back to the community.

Tax Reduction & Reform

att has a background in business and economics. His strong commitment to free markets, property rights, entrepreneurial opportunities as well as individual liberty and responsibility form the foundation of his commitment to ensuring others can experience the American Dream.  He believes that individual and corporate prosperity should be encouraged, not punished, and will fight to ensure that all residents of his district have the opportunity to pursue their dreams, take risks, and retain a greater portion of their earnings.

To that end, Matt supports broad and comprehensive reform of the income tax system that includes lowering the tax rate for individuals and corporations, allowing businesses to compete globally, and ensuring people are afforded opportunities to utilize their talents and skills while earning competitive salaries.
