Former State Rep Matt Patrick Running for His Old Seat

Matthew PatrickFALMOUTH – Former State Representative Matt Patrick has announced his candidacy for the 3rd Barnstable District state representative seat.

That seat is currently held by Falmouth Republican David Vieira and Patrick, a Democrat, held the seat previously for five consecutive terms.

“I feel very good about trying to bring the message that government is here to help you, and that’s what I feel good about doing in the future and that’s where my record of achievement stands,” said Patrick.

He said he wants to address income inequality in the district and is backing the fair share tax on millionaires.

“We have close to about 75 to 80 millionaires living in the district and right now they are paying less in taxes than the bottom 99 percent are in the Commonwealth,” said Patrick.

Patrick, who also serves as the Executive Director of Citizens for the Protection of Waquoit Bay, will make an official announcement on Friday, October 16, at Oysters Too in East Falmouth.
