PROFILE

October 31, 2020 by TWN Staff

About Cartwright:

Matt Cartwright worked as a trial attorney and is now the U.S. Congressman in Pennsylvania’s Eighth District. 

Cartwright was named one of the most effective Democrats in Congress for his ability to work across the aisle. He is an advocate for better wages; high-quality care for our veterans; and protecting our environment for future generations.

Since taking office in 2013, Cartwright has introduced more legislation supported by both Democrats and Republicans than any other House Democrat. In 2019, the Center for Effective Lawmaking named him one of the most effective members of the U.S. House for his record of advancing real solutions to the biggest issues our nation faces. In the past few years, Matt has gotten bills signed into law by the president that protect low-income veterans from being scammed out of their hard-earned benefits, prevent government officials from using taxpayer dollars on personal expenses, and safeguard the rights of child pornography victims.

He is a member of the Appropriations Committee. In 2021, Cartwright is in line to take over as the chairman of the Appropriations subcommittee. He lives in Moosic with his wife, Marion, and two sons, Jack and Matthew.
