Much has been said recently about the fact that Greg Gianforte is originally from New Jersey and therefore does not have Montana values and interests at heart. From a personal standpoint, I moved to Montana in 1961 because of the landscape and the people. I started a business and have supported my adopted community of Polson. I consider myself to be a Montanan.
We should be thankful someone with Greg Gianforte's intellect and organizational abilities chose to come to Montana to launch a business that continues to employ hundreds of Montanans in good-paying jobs. He recognized Montana as the treasure it is; a place to raise a family, support business growth, people and communities in Montana.
Just because he came to Montana from another state does not mean that he does not support the values and interests of Montana. To think otherwise is a disservice to Greg and what he stands for.

When you vote in May, vote for Greg Gianforte, the candidate who has a proven track record of creating hundreds of jobs in Montana, supporting Montana's education programs and its students, and supporting charitable causes in Bozeman and other communities.
