Matthew Nunez-Silva
Candidate for Holt

Matthew Nunez-Silva is running as the Liberal Democrats candidate for the seat of Holt at the upcoming federal election and is a Holt local. As a former small business owner, he understands both the long-term and day-to-day challenges small businesses have faced. He is passionate about providing stability to families who have faced difficulties during lockdowns—whether they suffered financial hardships and loss of employment, or whether they struggled with the burden of schooling their children through remote learning. 

Matthew’s experience in the workers compensation industry—advocating on behalf of injured workers—has encouraged him to take the leap into politics, as it has fostered his desire to help others and protect future generations. Matthew has also decided to run as a candidate for the seat of Holt as he is concerned by the lack of leadership, lack of transparency, and lack of accountability from both the major parties. If elected Matthew is determined to make real change by listening to his constituents and by advocating for his local community at a federal level.

In the words of Nobel Peace Prize Winner Aung San Suu Kyi: “Democracy is when the people keep a government in check.” This is a core belief of Matthew’s, and one he will use as a guiding principle in the upcoming campaign.
