3rd Barnstable District – State Representative Results – Winner – Patrick (D)


3rd Barnstable District – State Representative Candidates

  • The Candidates
    • Matt Patrick (D)
      • Matt was born the first of 10 children in Millstone, New Jersey to his father, a teacher and World War II veteran and his mother, who cared for the children and was mayor of their small town on and off for over 20 years.  He spent most of his time outdoors playing sports, camping and fishing.  Later he played cornerback for his high school football team which led to a scholarship–his only opportunity to attend college–to play at Upsala College, where he majored in Fine Arts.
    • Michael Blanton (D)
      • Michael grew up in the 3rd Barnstable District. My family came to Bourne when his grandfather was stationed at Otis Air Force Base (now Joint Base Cape Cod) and served as a chief master sergeant in air traffic control. His mother graduated from Bourne High School, as did Michael. As a youth, Michael participated in Civil Air Patrol and Boy Scouts at Otis, learned to swim at Monument Beach and worked his way through college as a lifeguard and water safety instructor. It wasn’t Baywatch, but it was a great way to grow up on the Upper Cape. Michael is now raising my son Kai here now, in the hopes that he might enjoy an upbringing like his.
