Matt Keating's Blog

You can read entries from Matt's complete historical blog archives here.

Matt Keating, A-Z, is: an activist, broadcaster, community organizer, Democrat, EverydayCitizen blogger, fan of film, goofball, healthcare advocate, indie-rock nerd, journalist, Keating, lover of life, member, new-media nut-job, Oregon delegate for Obama, proud pet owner, queer-straight alliance supporter, radio enthusiast, student, thespian, uncle of a baby boy named Brendon, videographer, west coast native, former 91X DJ, youth vote organizer working for the benefit of future generations.

When asked why he's jumping in with both feet, Matt explained, "As more and more Americans, specifically members of my generation, tend to consume information from the blogosphere, participation is key. It creates a sense of on-line community, stimulates conversation, and encourages the notion of watch-dog activism by our populace. With the power of the voice and the vote, we are, as actively engaged citizens, the ultimate checks-and-balance element in our democratic process. If we don't work to maintain our democracy, who will? "

We wholeheartedly agree with him. We're so thrilled and honored that this experienced activist and organizer is now an Everyday Citizen writer.

Matt thinks that Mahatma Gandhi got it right when he said, "First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win."

Matt welcomes you to read his blog posts here.
