June 22, 2012 — The Montana Chamber of Commerce today announced their endorsement of Monica Lindeen for reelection as Montana’s State Auditor. The Chamber cited Monica’s pro-development voting record and her more reasonable approach to insurance and securities regulation as key reasons for the endorsement.
An entrepreneur and former small-business owner, Lindeen has a strong record of creating jobs and promoting Montana’s economy. She started one of Montana’s first internet service providers, and wrote the legislation that created Montana’s economic development trust fund.
As a member of Montana’s Land Board, Monica has supported every opportunity to develop the states abundant natural resources, from coal and oil to timber and renewable energy.
