|Preceded by||Stephen Stat Smith|

Wayne Matewsky is a former American state legislator who served in the Massachusetts House of Representatives from 2013 to 2015. He is an Everett resident and a member of the Democratic Party. He was elected in 2013 in a special election to succeed Stephen Stat Smith, who resigned after pleading guilty to his role in a voter fraud scheme. In addition to serving as a state representative, Matewsky was a member of the Everett Common Council from 1981 to 2014 and an aide to Smith.
Shortly after winning the Democratic nomination, Matewsky received negative attention for allegedly mocking a disabled child in a restaurant and berating staff for seating him near the child. In December 2013, two former campaign workers sued Matewsky seeking payment for services provided. On January 30, 2014, he was arrested on a civil warrant for failing to pay $446 to one of his former campaign workers. Matewsky paid the bill in court and the case was dismissed. Matewsky claimed that the arrest was part of a "smear campaign" and accused his former worker of not cashing a check in order to discredit him.
