Montana has its own unique way of life, traditions, and culture. I am a strong advocate of Montana 's hunting and fishing heritage, and I firmly support the right of law-abiding citizens to own and bear arms.
Our Founding Fathers considered this right so fundamental that they protected it in the Second Amendment of the U.S. Constitution. The Second Amendment states that the people's right to keep and bear arms may not be infringed, and I believe that citizens who are in compliance with the law should not have that guaranteed right taken away. Having been endorsed by the Montana Shooting Sports Associaton, I am committed to hunting, responsible gun ownership, and preservation of the Right to Bear Arms.
Other issues of concern to those living within House District 70 include:
* The abundance of gravel pits and the conflict of use that they frequently present for neighboring land owners.
* Water rights and the future disbursement of water appurtenant to those rights are of considerable concern for many residents.
* Schools, their proximity to the students attending them, and funding for their services are all questions of significant gravity within the district, as they are throughout Montana.
* The safety of Highway 191, particularly the Canyon stretch running from mile marker 71 to roughly mile marker 35, is of ongoing importance as safety measures along the entire length of the highway are implemented and addressed.
* Finally, the Gallatin Gateway neighborhood zoning plan is a subject of some contention for constituents living in and around that area and the question of how the Gateway "town core" might remediate its antiquated water and sewer infrastructure.
Several positions are currently available for active members of the Republican Party who'd like to serve as precinct captains and assist in the fight for conservative values. Feel free to contact me or Gallatin County Republican Headquarters for details!
