After years as a volunteer, it is time for me to take the next step and be one of the leaders in moving our state forward. As a Montana State Legislator, I will be in a position to support those who have the same values as we do and work to find common ground with those whose priorities may differ.
I know that we, as Montanans, have more that brings us together than separates us.
I love my Helena community and its place within the State of Montana. I see young families in my community and want to provide for them a future filled with possibility. I know that this is the “Last Best Place” for students, workers and seniors and that we can bridge the divide between the “haves” and “have nots” with greater compassion and success than anywhere else in this land. We are stronger together than we are apart.
As United States citizens, we are blessed with innumerable civil rights and these cherished rights come with responsibilities. In my middle school social studies classes, I urge my students to be active members of their community and to embrace civic participation. Yet many of these young people find it difficult to see the connection between what they can do and how they can make a difference. Running for political office is one of the clearest ways to responsibly and actively demonstrate confidence in our system.
I am running for the Montana State Legislature because I believe my life experience, faith in civil discourse and ability to build bridges while standing firm on my core values will help make this great state even more treasured.
I would be honored to earn your support,
