On May 20 you printed a letter that criticized Bryce Bennett based on an event he organized on behalf of his employer, Forward Montana.
Forward Montana is a nonpartisan organization that works to engage people in politics regardless of their political stripe. As the chair of Forward Montana, I want to set the record straight: Forward Montana hosted an event titled "Pub Crawl for Equality" to encourage volunteerism around our work to promote equality for Montana's LGBTQQI community.
The event offered designated drivers throughout the entire evening, and volunteer drivers made sure every individual was offered a safe ride home. Forward Montana encourages responsibility while drinking and does not condone drinking and driving. As a board member, supporter, and volunteer of Forward Montana and a friend of Bennett, I can assure you safety and responsibility are two of Forward Montana's and Bryce Bennett's primary concerns.
