Support for Trautwein

  We have known Paige Allen Trautwein for fifteen years and what has impressed us most is her hard work and determination to do her very best job in whatever she decides to do. Paige has a unique ability to handle really tough situations with grace, dignity and good judgment. Paige was born and raised…

Support for Presswood

  Whether you know her as “Maureen Draper Presswood” or simply as “Mo”, she is running for Ravalli County Clerk of District Court. She is more than just a name and you should know who she is before you vote. You should also know who she is running against. Be informed. I am writing this…

Thomas on wrong track

So now Fred Thomas wants us to get on the right track, and elect him as state senator again. We should remember the track Thomas took us on when he was a state senator in the 1990’s. He sponsored a bill (proposed by corporations like Enron and future Enron lobbyist Racicot) to deregulate electric power…

Support for Thomas

I would like to thank Mike K. for his insight on Fred Thomas and for noticing the sign at my business. Yes, Mike, Fred’s connections to small business are very real and much appreciated. I want that in the politician that I intend to vote for. That is why I proudly display his sign. I…

Questions about Thomas’ sincerity

Recently, I attended a public forum sponsored by the Ravalli County GOP where citizens were encouraged to meet candidates and speak with them directly about issues of concern. One of the candidates I spoke with was Fred Thomas, who’s running for Senate District 45. Fred is on record as supporting private property rights and reducing…

This is part of an easement served on me by Fred Thomas: The purpose of this easement is to provide for the planting of evergreen trees on property owned by D. J. in order to provide privacy for property owned by Spencer F. and Suzanne M. Thomss. The grantor covenants with the grantee that she…

Support for MacLaren

When you go to the polls next week, you really need to consider who you want to represent you, your county, and the state. Do you wish to have a sensible, honorable man, who proudly served his country for three years in the Vietnam conflict, or one who attacks federal employees when he doesn’t get…

Support for Lake

  The primary election season is almost over. I am concerned about the possibility of another four years of having a public service commissioner who puts her own personal agenda ahead of the comfort and quality of the lives of our citizens and the overall economy of Montana. I have reduced the temperature in my…

Support for Pearson

  Recent financial reports of our Public Service Commission candidates draws a bright line between them. Chris Griel had five donors (one was PSC Chairman Travis Kavulla). Chris did not raise enough to cover the cost of filing. Sen. Bob Lake had 45 donors. The largest was himself. PSC Chairman Travis Kavulla also donated to…

Quit convicting marijuana users

By Anne Ward, Corvallis I support restructuring the drug policy in the USA for fiscal and social reasons. I am heartened to see a petition circulating in Montana to put a measure on the 2012 ballot that would end criminal penalties for adult marijuana related activities. This is something we can do locally to address…
