Entrepreneur and Kentucky native Matthew “Matt” Lehman will run to unseat Rep. Thomas Massie to restore responsible, respectful leadership to Kentucky’s Fourth Congressional District.
“Kentucky deserves a representative who focuses on job creation, affordable health care, education and fighting the opioid epidemic, instead of picking fights on social media,” Lehman said. “I want to let every voter know there’s a better choice this November.”
Lehman, 44, is a Northern Kentucky native who graduated from Covington Catholic High School, University of Louisville and Columbia University. He has managed and founded several successful healthcare companies. Most recently, Lehman was the CEO and co-founder of Koligo Therapeutics, a University of Louisville spin-out that developed treatments for pancreatitis without opioids.
He and his wife, Adriana, are raising their children in Newport. Lehman currently consults to the healthcare industry and to the thoroughbred industry preparing for new legislative initiatives.
“I have no doubt that Thomas Massie will dust off an old playbook to paint me as an extremist out of touch with Kentucky. But we know a hypocrite by his actions: a zealot who sends Christmas cards with his children holding assault weapons; an anti-government radical who fought against helping children in Kentucky devastated by the opioid crisis; a man who votes against replacing the Brent Spence Bridge before it falls into the Ohio River; and a ‘third-rate grandstander,’ according to President Trump, after Massie held up coronavirus relief because he ‘just wants the publicity,’” Lehman said.
“Enough is enough. It’s time to elect a congressman who represents Kentucky values, who lives in the heart of our district, and who has brought investment and jobs to the Commonwealth. I’m going to work tirelessly to earn the votes to make this happen.”
