Together We Stand,
Bringing Common Sense to the Classroom

I want to serve on the Manitowoc Public School District Board because I want to give back to this community of hard working individuals that helped me become the problem solving, motivated, free-thinker I am today. I will put parents and students' words into action. This community helped shape my values of respect, character, and honesty to all people. I will be accountable for my actions and I will fight for the best outcome of our children. People are what make a community great. I’m proud to call Manitowoc county my home. 


I’m a voice of truth from the everyday hardworking family. Common sense and objective goals need to be set, monitored, and reached. If there is a problem, it needs to be fixed. The school board needs to hold positions accountable on performance. Students need to be taught how to learn, not always what to learn. Parent’s are and always need to be in charge of all decisions for their children. School needs to remain a safe brick and mortar place where children can grow to become lifelong learners.    


I believe with my teaching background and my real-world experiences I can bridge the gap to solve problems most effectively to provide the best outcome for our children. Our community has always focused on the development of the whole child, helping all students learn and grow to become productive members of society. I think responsibly and accountability is the path that students need to follow. Lifting the load, working hard at your projects, never giving up is how students become successful in life.    


I ask for you to Vote for me, so I can start working on the success of Manitowoc Public School District. I will lift the load, be the voice for our children's future, and provide real world solutions to ever changing challenges. 


God Bless,

Matthew D. Phipps


My commitment to you:

I will speak for the people of this community that work so hard to make it great. I will stand up for our children that need a voice. I will listen to the parents and make sure their voices are being heard. I will work unapologetically to foster a learning environment that creates free-thinking individuals. Working with other board members, I will keep open lines of communication to solve ever-changing problems. This is our home, stand with me to defend it.
