The Only Progressive Running for State Senate in District 9

Matt Lesser is a progressive fighter. As the son of an immigrant and grandson of a refugee, he knows that tolerance and inclusion matter. So does protecting the middle class.

Matt Lesser wrote the law that kept fracking waste out of our state, and he helped pass our marriage equality law. As a cancer survivor, he has lead efforts to preserve the Medicare Savings Program, and he’s expanded healthcare access for women with cancer. Matt wrote the nation’s first “Student Loan Bill of Rights,” and was honored by the AARP for protecting us from unreasonable utility rate hikes.

He lives in Middletown’s North End with his wife Sarah, a civil rights attorney, and their dog Lucy.
