Matt Holliday fell in love with Chester County when he first set foot on the campus of West Chester University over 10 years ago. Since graduating he has stayed in his adopted hometown of West Chester, where he currently works as the Chief of Staff for State Representative Dan Truitt. Matt’s philosophy is that having been blessed by this community and its people so much over the last 10 years, it is only right that he try to give back to the county in any way he can.
That is why Matt serves as the President of the West Chester Public Library Board of Trustees, a member of the Board of Directors of the Domestic Violence Center of Chester County, a member of the Board of Trustees of the Friends Association for the Care and Protection of Children, the Public Relations Chairman and Member of the Board of Directors for the Rotary Club of West Chester, a Member and Secretary of the Board of Directors for the West Chester Area Senior Center, the Vice President of the Board of Directors of the West Chester Downtown Foundation, the Service Committee Chairman and Member of the Board of Directors for the West Chester University Alumni Association, the Vice President and Member of the Board of Directors of the Friars’ Society Alumni Association, and a Third Degree Knight of Columbus here in West Chester. He also served for four years as the Vice President of the West Chester Parks and Recreation Commission.
With the goal of serving the County of Chester as a whole, Matt has become a candidate for Chester County Prothonotary. Should he be elected, he wants to work hard to improve the administration of the office by constantly seeking feedback from the customers of the office, as well as establishing new customer service training for the staff, and by implementing new technologies to streamline the office and make it more efficient.
