The present administration has had four very long years to “Make America Great Again.” I’m not seeing anything that has made our country better … we seem to have gone “down hill” instead. There is so much hate and fear in our country it is impossible to ignore. It’s time to work together on solutions and not keep adding flames to the fire as this administration is prone to do.

I am a Christian and personally do not believe in abortion, but I do believe women have the right to have control over their own bodies and not be subjected to laws primarily written by men.

I do not believe in socialism, but I do believe there are people among us who, through no fault of their own, do need assistance to survive, be it health care, food stamps etc..

I believe that illegal immigration has to be controlled to a certain extent, but the belief that these people are taking away jobs from hard-working Americans makes me think there are thousands of American citizens lining up to do the back-breaking work of planting and picking crops in the broiling heat and sun and working long hours in the meat packing plants to put food in the supermarkets and on our tables.

I believe in the Second Amendment, but also believe military-grade weapons belong in the hands of the military.

And lastly, climate control is out of control, just like the COVID-19 virus.

Thank you for letting me “vent.”

Cooney will work for women's rights, deserves vote

Cooney will work for women’s rights, deserves vote

If you’re a Montana woman, or have women in your life, you should think twice before voting for Gianforte. His record shows his disregard for the rights, concerns and needs of women.

Consider that since 2008 his foundation has donated $227,000 to FamilyLife, a fundamentalist group that teaches that women should be subservient to their husbands and put raising children ahead of their careers. That’s fine assuming your husband isn’t abusive or hasn’t left you or you’re not in a family that can’t put food on the table unless both parents work.

This might explain why Gianforte believes women have no rights regarding their own health or when or whether to have children. It might explain why he’s voted to repeal the Affordable Care Act which requires that insurance covers pre-existing conditions such as pregnancy. Harder to explain is why he deplores Medicaid,  which enables 90,000 Montanans to have basic healthcare.

Lt. Gov. Mike Cooney has a long history of standing up for the interests of women, protecting their rights, making it easier to care for their children and providing meaningful health care. Cooney’s not a billionaire, but he does understand and will fight for the interest of Montana women.

Williams will work to get veterans help they deserve

Williams will work to get veterans help they deserve

Montana needs an “at-large” representative who will go to Washington to restore civility and integrity.

And that’s why I’m casting my vote for Kathleen Williams and encourage Montanans to vote for a candidate who will bring her experience and independence to Washington to work with people of all political stripes to do what’s right for Montana.

During the past year, as a Vietnam veteran and advocate for veterans and their families in Southwest Montana, I have met with Kathleen Williams several times to discuss VA Health Care Services, programs that help returning veterans get jobs and start businesses, and veteran suicide prevention strategies.

Fighting for our veterans, service members, and their families is personal for Kathleen. Her father served in WWII and her late husband Tom was a Vietnam-era veteran. Kathleen was born in an Army hospital and their family goods and groceries came from the commissary and PX. Her military family background forges Kathleen’s commitment to our service members.

In Montana, we honor service and I know that Kathleen Williams will proudly be a voice for our Montana veterans to ensure they receive the services they need and the opportunities they deserve.
