Mr. Spears is running as a Republican and currently is the Administrative Assistant to Lorain County Commissioner Michelle Hung. He has been serving the residents of Lorain County in his current position and wishes to serve the residents in a larger capacity as a County Commissioner. Matthew is a strong supporter of the rights of organized labor.
Matthew has a Master of Science in Criminal Justice Administration, Safety, and Security, and a Bachelor of Arts in Public Safety Management with an emphasis in Homeland Security. He also has two (2) Professional Development Certificates from Lorain County Community College in Public Administration and in Police Science.

His platform is based on reestablishing a positive relationship between the residents of Lorain County and county government, including the first responder community. Matthew understands that ensuring the safety, security and welfare of the residents of Lorain County is one of the primary responsibilities of county government, and decisions made by county officials should be based on the input and best interest of the residents they represent.
