In John Engen, I see so many qualities that make him the ideal mayor for Missoula: honesty, determination, leadership, intelligence, kindness and understanding, patience, accessibility.
Look around us at other cities and towns, large and small. Do we see that? Missoula is so fortunate to have this caring, smart, willing and able man at the helm. We need to do everything we can to keep him and pay forward for our city, to keep Missoula safe from outside interests and land and water grabbers who think we are without education, manners and goals.
Don't scoff! I heard it on the national news, referring to people in Montana as being rural and without much education. Let them come talk to Mayor John Engen and hear about Missoula and Montana. Vote.
