Afghanistan veteran Matt Goetten is running for Congress in the 13th district of Illinois which includes the Metro-East, Springfield, Decatur, Urbana-Champaign, and Bloomington. This is a great opportunity for us to elect another veteran to Congress.

In 1999, while studying for his law degree at Southern Illinois University Carbondale, Matt answered the call to serve his country, enlisting in the Illinois Army National Guard. In 2009, Matt was deployed to Afghanistan, where his duties included working in remote operating bases throughout the country.

In 2004, Matt was elected Greene County State’s Attorney. Working with local law enforcement, Matt helped create a county drug task force that concentrated on fighting meth – drastically reducing the number of cases and aggressively cracking down on those who manufacture and sell methamphetamine and other drugs. Matt’s primary concern as a prosecutor has been to protect the victims of crimes. To this end, he created a victim’s advocate in Greene County. He also worked with DCFS and local law enforcement to bring a child advocacy center to the area to serve Greene and the surrounding rural counties to combat child abuse. By thinking creatively, Matt was able to expand the impact and capability of local law enforcement, without further burdening Greene County taxpayers.

Matt is just the kind of person we need in Washington. He served, and he knows veterans issues well. He also has the experience needed to make a real difference. Let’s all come together to help out his campaign.
