His resume was augmented by stories from Jo about her younger brother. Matt mentioned he was a Paul Harris recipient. He touched upon 3 main topics in his talk: ranked choice voting, Real ID and voting integrity. He spent a while on the problems he faced getting the records from the commission studying voter fraud. HE was a commission member. He assured us that Maine votes are well protected and not hackable.
He gets asked about future episodes of Northwood Law and said that no new episodes are currently planned.
