Democratic voters in the Rattlesnake Valley and the Seeley Lake/Condon areas will decide between two candidates on the Democratic primary ballot in House District 92 on June 8.
The first is Tim "Doc" McCue, a University of Montana graduate and doctor at the University of Montana's Curry Health Center who has lead cutting edge high-tech medical research projects. McCue has maturity, real world experience, knowledge of families and is trained in prioritizing and making critical decisions that impact people's lives.
The other candidate is Bryce Bennett, a young recent graduate with little experience or qualifications. Bennett apparently feels that organizing "Drinking Liberally" parties at the local bars for college students and being paid to knock on doors for political issues are all the qualifications needed to go to Helena to manage a $1.9 billion state budget and prioritize Montana's top spending needs. While Bennett's work for UM's GLBT organization to fight for gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender rights is a noble cause, we need more than a single-issue candidate representing us in Helena this year.
Montana's families face serious issues. We worry about health care costs, an under-funded education system, disappearing jobs, preserving our environment and the increasing number of drunk drivers who take our children's lives.
Tim "Doc" McCue is the only candidate on the Democratic primary ballot who has the experience, maturity and good judgment to prioritize these issues, confront the problems facing Montana's families and represent us wisely in Helena.
