Matt Dowling brings common sense to Harrisburg, real-world skills, conservative values, and an understanding of the concerns of our families that will help him make a positive difference for everyone in the 51st District.
Born and raised in our community, Matt graduated from Uniontown Area High School and later earned a degree from Waynesburg University. Today, he and his wife Rebecca are raising their two sons here, and instilling in them the same values that so many of us share.
As a husband and the father of two young children, Matt understands the priorities and concerns of local residents. It is this understanding that he carries with him to Harrisburg to fight for common sense solutions on issues that affect our community.
Matt is also an active and dedicated community volunteer who gives his time and effort to numerous local civic organizations. He and his wife created a fund in conjunction with the Community Foundation of Fayette that helps raise funding for local non-profits; together, they founded the annual “Share the Spirit” event that has provided tens of thousands of dollars to help the people of our community.
A real conservative, Matt is a strong supporter of the Second Amendment, is pro-life, and believes that our elected officials must protect from infringement of our Constitutional Rights.
