Missoula County is facing some intractable issues that require a fresh, energetic approach to finding solutions, which is why we will be supporting and voting for Josh Slotnick for county commissioner.
Slotnick will listen to Missoula County citizens and look for innovative solutions to transportation, affordable housing and land use issues. He has exhibited values through his life and work that we believe in; a commitment to public lands, to social responsibility and to building sustainable, livable communities.
Allowing unfettered growth in Missoula County without considering and exploring innovative approaches will result in Missoula County becoming another Boulder, Colorado and, yes, a Bozeman, Montana. It will require energy and resolve to change outdated regulations and attitudes — we believe Josh Slotnick has the energy and skills to meet these challenges.
