Candidate for the Kansas State House District 87
Matt Fox is a teacher, a wrestling coach, and a union member serving on his regional leadership board for the KNEA. A born-and-raised Kansan, he is striving to better our community further by running for Wichita’s 87th District seat in the Kansas State House of Representatives.
Kansas invested in Matt’s education as a child. Now, as a teacher, he spends his days working in his own childhood classrooms in Marvin Sisk Middle School to return that investment to today’s youth. A social studies teacher, he emboldens his students to advocate for themselves, ask questions, and find their own voices.
After graduating from Douglass High School, Matt attended Cowley County Community College and Emporia State University for his Bachelor’s Degree in Secondary Education; he later attained his Master’s in Education from Baker University.
An experienced negotiator, Matt works persistently to promote the development and inclusion of advanced policies to enrich the lives of his students and fellow educators. As a candidate, he now seeks to do the same for the 87th District.
In June of 2019, Matt married Makayla Alderson Fox, an executive assistant, academic, and community organizer; they live in Wichita, where they prioritize community involvement by engaging with diverse voices and volunteering with a variety of organizations.
Matt Fox and his team are developing a campaign to empower the voices of the 87th. They’d like to form a sincere coalition with their district and would greatly benefit from your input, questions, and concerns.
