First of all, Matt Brouillette (bree-YET) obviously has an impeccable sense of style.
Here is his extensive and impressive bio:
Matt is a prominent voice in statewide public policy debates through frequent appearances in print, television, and talk radio across the Commonwealth.
Prior to joining the Commonwealth Foundation in 2002, Matt served as the Director of Education Policy at the Mackinac Center for Public Policy in Michigan. And before his career in public policy, Matt spent seven years teaching history and coaching football and baseball at the high school and middle school levels. Matt also taught history and economics at the university level.
Matt is a board member of the REACH Foundation, a Pennsylvania school choice advocacy organization, the Joshua Group, a Harrisburg nonprofit ministry serving at-risk youth, and the Fairness Center, a public interest law firm. He is on an advisory board for the Economics Department at Duquesne University. Previously, Matt served on an advisory council of the E. G. West Centre for Market Solutions in Education at the University of Newcastle Upon Tyne in England, on an advisory committee for the New York City-based Atlantic Legal Foundation, and as an advisory board member for the American Academy for Liberal Education in Washington, D.C., a national organization dedicated to strengthening and promoting liberal education through accreditation and research.
The Commonwealth Foundation is a Pennsylvania-focused free-market think tank. Their mission is to turn ideas into public policies. In other words, they do the HARD work that we pundits and commentators merely talk about.
To get a flavor of Matt, here’s a quick clip of him explaining what the Commonwealth Foundation does:
Starting in July, Matt is going to be leading a new venture, called Commonwealth Partners Chamber of Entrepreneurs. They will be taking the policy ideas and positions of the Commonwealth Foundation and putting them to work with local businesses in the political arena.
Obviously, we will have TONS to talk about.
Lastly, by way of full disclosure, Matt and I met each other when we were 12 years old in junior high school. Almost 20 years ago!
