Welcome to our newest Board Member, Matthew Cobb, of Raleigh, NC, serving as Alternate At-Large #6, replacing Rachel Mills, who stepped down to move to Florida with her Husband and two sons, as of our last executive committee meeting June 24th 2021.
Matthew Cobb has been passionate about liberty from a young age. From dressing up as George Washington in Kindergarten to enlisting in the U.S. Army Reserve straight out of High School, Matthew has always sought to promote and protect America’s founding principles, liberty being chief among them. Born and raised on “the edge of nowhere” just outside of Goldsboro NC, he moved to Raleigh following a tour of duty in Afghanistan to attend NC State. Matthew graduated Summa Cum Laude from NC State with a BA in Political Science and worked as an intern for former State Senator Andrew Brock as part of NC State’s Legislative Internship program. He has worked as an activist for various conservative and libertarian aligned groups including the Leadership Institute and Americans for Prosperity and currently works in IT as a Network Engineer to pay the bills. When not at his day job Matthew enjoys growing in his faith in Jesus Christ, video games, watching pro wrestling, and having a good political debate.
