Matt Morgan is running for the Texas legislature. He won the first primary on March 2 with 49.7% of the vote. He almost won without a runoff. This is Matt’s biography:
‘My great-grandparents, my mom, and my sister were all Texas educators. Serving others is in my family’s DNA, and that makes me very proud.’
For a man to lead, he must first walk the path of his constituents. As a constituent, the leader will naturally serve others in all that he does, because the leader believes that to serve others is a privilege.
Matthew R. Morgan’s Texas family roots date back nearly 200 years ago. Matthew’s ancestral family moved to Texas with Stephen F. Austin, as part of the original 300 in 1825. Stephen F. Austin is considered the founder of Texas as we know it today.
Matthew graduated from Sam Houston State University in Huntsville with a bachelor’s degree in business. Matthew received two separate job offers; one was from an elite stock brokerage firm, and the other from a well-known insurance company. This was the pinnacle moment in Matthew’s career, for he picked the profession that would help others when they experienced a loss.
Matthew is proud of being an Eagle Scout and was the recipient of the Young American Award. In 1993, he earned proclamation of a day in his honor through the City of Houston for service to his community. He also currently serves on the board of directors for Lamar Little League and as a committee member for Cub Scout Pack 10 based in Richmond, TX.
Devoted to his community, Matthew helped build several homes through Habitat for Humanity. He also collected over 100K books for needy children for a literacy organization in Houston. To Matthew’s surprise, he met former First Lady Barbara Bush, who served on the organization’s board of directors, and they have remained lifelong acquaintances until her passing.
Matthew is currently a public insurance adjuster, licensed in Texas, Georgia, and Colorado. After years of working as an insurance adjuster for various top well-known insurance companies, Matthew decided that he could better serve others if he only represented the policyholders. In 2015, Matthew launched Morgan Elite Specialist Services, LLC. Matthew advocates for his clients who are the policyholders of various insurance companies and have suffered losses.
He is happily married to his wife Jessica, and they have two children, Westley and Samantha. He is also the proud papa of two dogs, Smokey and Bandit.
What a guy! He had me at “I was an Eagle Scout.” I think I may have made it to First Class. His personality is engaging and authentic. We need more representatives like Matt Morgan, and I urge you to support him.
