This is who we are.

Our people come from a wide range of political and professional backgrounds. As individuals, they bring special skills, broad knowledge, and significant relationships to their work. As a group, there is no greater force in Pennsylvania politics.

Matt Rucci Associate

Matt was raised in Upper Darby, PA where he discovered early in his life that he wanted to pursue a career linked to Pennsylvania politics. After graduating from Upper Darby High School, he attended Elizabethtown College to receive both his undergraduate and graduate degrees.

Prior to joining Greenlee Partners, Matt worked as the Deputy Political Director for a gubernatorial campaign and was a Research Analyst on the House Transportation Committee for the House Republican Caucus. While working on the campaign trail, Matt traveled throughout the Commonwealth (visiting nearly all 67 counties), which has provided him with a unique lens when comprehending state and local policy issues. During his time with the House Transportation Committee, Matt was tasked with the responsibility of staffing legislation successfully through the legislative process. In addition, Matt’s time in the House afforded him the opportunity to forge crucial relationships with several members of the General Assembly, staff, and key stakeholders.

Matt resides in the Harrisburg area with his wife Cassie and two dogs Murphy & Macy.
