                          2732 S.47th St. Milwaukee WI, 53219



Matthew is running for Wisconsin’s 7th District State Assembly Seat, which is made up of portions of Southwest Milwaukee, Greenfield, West Allis, and West Milwaukee.

Matthew offers the Wisconsinites of District Seven an honest option in the political landscape. An option that values and respects the individual, their rights, and places them in control of their lives. An option that will promote ingenuity and success and not stymie it with taxes and regulations. 

Matthew as a law enforcement officer has seen firsthand how the misguided legislation from both parties has hurt the citizens of Milwaukee County. He and the Libertarian Party want to offer a clear path forward, a path for free people to make a free Wisconsin! 

Matthew resides in the Jackson Park Neighborhood of Milwaukee with his wife (Anna) and three young sons (Liam, Emmett, and Rowan). A graduate of Marian University (Fond Du Lac WI), he has worked as a Police officer and most recently as a Detective in the Milwaukee Police Dept. in both patrol and Investigative rolls for the past ten years. Matthew is a member in good standing with the Milwaukee Police Association (MPA) and the Law Enforcement Action Partnership (LEAP).

I've lived, worked, and currently raise my family in the 45th district. I plan on staying here. We cannot continue to tolerate the burden of partisan politics, excessive government, and lack of real solutions. Lack of representation has had more than a fiscal impact, the social impact has been disastrous. People, not politics, are the solution.

Too many elected representatives have not consideredhow to utilize technology, communication, and representation to YOUR full advantage. Inefficient representation leads to money leaving local communities, only to come up short when funds are truly needed for essential local demands. 

I advocate for personal liberty, economic freedom, and limited government. I support reducing state and federal influence on local governments.

I know the people of the 45th. WE can figure out how to meet our demands. WE can provide jobs, opportunity, and real value now and for future generations. Working together we can reduce government with peaceful and prosperous results.

Rick Braun is running for Wisconsin’s 14th District State Assembly Seat, which is made up of portions of Brookfield, Wauwatosa and Milwaukee. He currently resides in the Golden Valley Neighborhood of Milwaukee with his wife (Melissa) and their two young children (Iona and DJ).

Motivated by the September 11th attacks Rick enlisted in the United States Marine Corps serving for eight years as an Infantry Rifleman. During that time he deployed twice to Iraq in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom, and was also deployed to Niger, Africa as part of the Pan Sahel Initiative, and to Chile, in support of the Partnership of the Americas. He has graduated from American Military University with a Bachelor’s of Business Administration, and is currently completing a Master’s in Political Science from the same university.

Rick has also worked for many years as a manager and supervisor for warehousing and logistics and has seen firsthand how our current employment laws which claim to protect workers’ rights actually do more harm to those workers. That includes wages, hours worked, employment practices, and how having health insurance attached to your employment benefits can have negative consequences to healthcare.


Larry Stafford

Congressional District 1. Janesville, WisconsinStafford.png

Larry A Stafford, 51, is just an ordinary, hard working guy, with extraordinary objectives!

Larry was born in Beloit, WI, in 1966.  He attended local area schools through Jr high. For high school, Larry attended Wisconsin Academy located in Columbus, WI.  Due to lack of family funding Larry returned home for his senior year & attended Beloit Open Bible, receiving his Wisconsin GED diploma in November of 1984.  His GED scores were sufficient enough to win him listing in Who's Who among American high school students that year!

In December 1984 Larry entered the US Army & attended the Military Police Officer's Academy.  Upon completion he served in Alabama, Germany & Virginia.  After active duty he also served in the reserves.  Larry completed Drill Instructor Academy  & Parachute Jump School on an active duty basis while in the reserves.  The start of his civilian employment ranged from security & manufacturing work, to even the better part of a year selling life insurance.  Finally, Larry found an occupation that he really enjoyed, and in May 1992 he became a semi truck driver.  He started his driving career with Schneider national carriers.  He was over the road & gone for at least a week at a time traveling the nation for three years.  From there, in 1995, he got a local job switching semi trailers at the General Motors plant in Janesville, WI.  Working for a few different companies since then, Larry has remained a truck driver through to his current employer, Lakeside International Trucks.  There he serves as a shuttle route driver transferring the companies parts between local truck dealerships.
In the spare time he has left, Larry was married twice & is currently divorced.  He is Dad to four children, and Grandpa to seven grand children!  He has also owned rental property and participated in political activities.  In 2000 Larry served as the Illinois state volunteer coordinator for the Libertarian Presidential campaign of Harry Browne.  In 2008 Larry was asked to serve, and ran as the Illinois Libertarian Party candidate for US Senate.  His website for that 2008 campaign is still archived by the Library of Congress!  You can view that website here:

Larry's current campaign is for the 1st Congressional District of Wisconsin, running for the seat currently held by Speaker Paul Ryan. He has a Facebook page, and you can follow his current campaign at this link:  Any help you can give to assist with his success in this campaign would be appreciated!

    I can definitely relate to Brian Defferding’s problem with needing to have a permit to build a fence in his backyard, especially as I help run a landscaping business that builds fences every month and it’s always a hassle making sure everything is okay under regulation. But that alone is no reason to run for government! I don’t want to intrude on anyone’s opinion with this comment but I just felt like I needed to say something because it’s rather funny. With all sincerity I hope whoever gets elected has a balance between kindheartedness and qualification. There looks like some good candidates up there!

    Thanks for letting me share my thoughts.
