The Land Board is a critical component and responsibility of the Superintendent's office that serves a very important purpose. Their responsibility is not only to the people of Montana, but to the land as well.
Working together, we can strike a balance between conservation and responsible commerce. Montana has a long tradition of maintaining community school funding through industries such as logging, mining and ranching. All this has happened without sacrificing the recreational opportunities that people come from around the world to enjoy.
As a member of the Land Board, I will take this responsibility seriously and continue to ensure this balance is maintained.
