Bio

Matt Simpson was elected to the New York State Assembly on November 3, 2020. His district is comprised of Essex County, Warren County, and parts of Saratoga and Washington counties. As an Assemblyman, Matt will work to rein in out-of-control spending, fight for lower taxes, eliminate burdensome unfunded mandates, and improve the state's failing infrastructure. Matt grew up in the North Country and was first elected to public office in 2011 when he won a seat on the Town Board in Horicon. Two years later, he was elected Town Supervisor where he served until his election to the Assembly. While Town Supervisor, he also worked double duty by sitting on the Warren County Board of Supervisors. There, Matt served as Committee Chair of Public Works, Committee Chair of Personnel, Committee Vice Chair of Public Safety, and in a number of other capacities. He was appointed to the Warren & Washington County IDA in 2015, and served as its Chair from 2018-2019. During that time, he oversaw many projects designed to advance the economic viability of the area. His volunteer work includes serving as President of the Adirondack Association of Towns and Villages (AATV). The AATV represents more than 100 municipalities throughout the Adirondack Park. In his time there, he has worked alongside members of New York State Assembly and Senate, as well as numerous environmental organizations like the Adirondack Counsel. Matt lives in Horicon with his wife, Judy, and their two children.
