Matthew Papke studied the foundation of our country early on during his elementary school years. He read works like Valley Forge, Common Sense and Poor Richards Almanac. He also watched G.I. Diaries with his Grandfather. These early writings and experiences spurred an intense love for freedom, benevolence and a desire for peace.
After high school Matthew enlisted into the United States Marine Corps where he served as a Infantry Assault Missile Man and was honorably discharged in September of 1998.
Matthew became involved in government to help get our country on the right track in 2010. He was elected as a National Delegate to the 2012 RNC where he represented Dr. Ron Paul. Mr. Papke believes that in order to change government you have to become government.
FreeTempe is about the people; government of the people by the people and for the people shall not perish from this Earth
