I don’t need to tell you how broken things are.
At the national level we have $20 trillion in debt, our infrastructure is falling apart and people are losing hope that the American Dream exists.
Here in Montana, our young people leave the state or shackle themselves to jobs that pay a fraction of what other areas do.
Missoula is perhaps worst of all. Out-of-control taxation, roads that look like mine fields and a city council that might as well rename itself "(Mayor John) Engen’s rubber stamp."
It’s a terrible state of affairs we find ourselves in. I’m running for the 2017 Montana Legislature in House District 99 to try and change some of those things.
It’ll be tough.
I feel the elite of the Democratic Party – both nationally and here in Montana – care more about advancing themselves and their own family’s well-being than they do your own.
I think we need some real change in this country and in this state.
Let’s get money out of politics and cut back on the corruption it causes. Let’s legalize marijuana and reduce property taxes and school bonds because of it. Let’s go over our budget line by line and cut out the fat that’s only benefiting the 1 percent of this state.
Most of all, let’s add some excitement and passion back to politics, the kind that we expect when people are fighting the good fight for the working men and women of Montana.
