Ravalli County voters are fortunate to have the opportunity to elect Rep. Pat Connell to Montana Senate District 44 this June. Pat’s legislative accomplishments and dedication to his constituents are well known in Helena. Last Legislative Session, Pat was influential on a number of important issues, including water rights, wildfire, wildlife and education. Pat was also a key member of the Montana Sage Grouse Advisory Council, helping ensure the interests of Montana’s agricultural and energy industry interests were given proper attention. Rep. Connell has a proven record as a legislator and will be a strong advocate for Ravalli County in the Montana Senate.
