Protecting Our Values and Voice
I'll Support Hard Working Montana Families
Growing up in Yellowstone County as the daughter of a truck driver and waitress, I understand how hard Montana families work to make a living. I was brought up to believe you should work hard, treat others with respect, care for your friends and family and give back to your community. These are the values Montanans share and they inform me every day as I work to serve the people of Montana.
I'll Help Business Grow
I know first-hand the challenges of starting and growing a business in our state. As a business owner, I helped bring internet service to Montanans. As a legislator I assisted businesses in creating thousands of good-paying jobs. As State Auditor, I listened to all business owners’ point of view and was fair-handed in regulating those entities. As Secretary of State, I will continue to lead with an open door policy and spirit of collaboration and will work to establish innovations to help businesses grow our economy.
I'll Protect Our Public Lands
Montana has a unique outdoor heritage and history of conservation. Preserving our way of life means protecting our public lands and public access to those lands. We must also continue to responsibly manage those lands for the future of our children. As a member of the Land Board for the last seven years, I fought to protect and expand our outdoor heritage and will continue to do so as your next Secretary of State.
I'll Protect Your Vote
This country was founded on the idea of equal opportunity for all and ensuring every eligible person is allowed to vote is crucial to a free democracy. Voting is one of the most important rights we have and should be protected with the same passion with which it was earned. As Secretary of State, I will fight to ensure your voice is heard and that our elections remain honest, fair and transparent. I’ll work to modernize our voting system and streamline any inefficiencies.
I'll Put Politics Aside
I’ve always put politics aside to do what’s right for Montana. As a legislator, I brought people together to solve issues. As State Auditor, I held giant corporations and insurance companies accountable and stood up for the rights of Montanans. As Secretary of State, I’ll ensure our elections remain honest, fair and transparent. I appreciate your support as Montana’s next Secretary of State.
