Political voting choices impact personal choices in life

I first met Greg Gianforte when he attended a “Politics and Eggs Breakfast-Montana Style” hosted by Stillwater Republican Women last December.
At that time he was exploring the possibility of running for governor of Montana. I found Greg to be down to earth and approachable.
Our next meeting was when he was doing the “Regulations Roundup” meetings in various communities. He made a stop in Columbus at the 307 Bar and Grill. He wanted to hear the concerns of businesses pertaining to regulations that hindered them.
The third time was being a part of the Reed Point Sheep Drive parade. He cares about the rural communities of Montana. Greg and his wife Susan were great sports because at noon it began to rain with the parade starting at 12:30 p.m. They both walked the parade route along with Lesley Robinson (lieutenant governor running mate), Rep. Forrest Mandeville and Sen. Elsie Arntzen (running for Superintendent of Schools aka Office of Public Instruction).
I want Montana’s next governor to be pro-2nd Amendment. There is no doubt that Greg Gianforte will defend the second amendment. The right to bear arms secures the freedom of “We The People.”
Being a man of integrity, faith, Pro-Life, supporting the coal miners of Colstrip, opposing resettlement of refugees in Montana, being a job creator, pro-second Amendment reflects my principles and values as well.
I will be voting for the “A Team” that will serve on the Montana State Land Board:
Governor, Greg Gianforte, Chair, Secretary of State – Corey Stapleton, Tim Fox, Attorney General, Matt Rosendale – Auditor and Elsie Arntzen – Superintendent of Public Instruction. This team has a proven leadership record.
