Committee Assignments


Matt Bliss is a married father of four and grandfather of four. He and his wife Emily, an elementary school teacher, live in Pennington where they own Bliss Point Resort, a resort on the Cass Lake chain of lakes. Matt is President of the Pennington Resort Association. Matt was raised on a Minnesota farm with his 9 siblings but his roots to our region go back nearly a century, his fathers family and extended family have been here since 1916. Matt has been visiting and enjoying the region his entire life. Matt works in technology management and is very experienced in the use of technology to improve performance and reduce costs. Matt began his training in technology after high school while serving in the US Navy and he has continued his education throughout his 31 year career to maintain his expertise as technology evolves and changes. Matt loves the outdoors and eventually decided to move to Beltrami County in 2001. He has been an active member of our community ever since and cares deeply about the issues we face and the opportunities we want to have. As an outdoorsman and conservationist, he will support common sense policies that protect our natural resources and way of life, while still enabling job creation and economic growth in Northern Minnesota. Matt is dedicated to the needs of those in Northern Minnesota and feels that too often we are beholden to the powerful interests in the metro areas. Matt wants our state government to work for all of us equally.
