Gianforte right for Montana

Print Article

Montana has one person representing our state in the U.S. House of Representatives. Therefore, the most qualified candidate must be elected to this important position. The two leading candidates for the job offer voters a clear choice: one is a model of Bernie Sanders’ liberalism; the other is a successful entrepreneur who exemplifies Montana values of hard work and personal responsibility.

Democrat candidate Rob Quist is a personable, talented musician who has devoted his life to entertainment. He also has a long history of personal financial troubles. He supports sanctuary cities, a national gun registry, a government-run healthcare system, higher taxes to offer more entitlements, and defends Obama’s Clean Power Plan which would close the Colstrip mines, resulting in the ripple effect of losing 7,000 good paying jobs and $145 million in Montana Tax revenues.

Republican candidate Greg Gianforte’s history exemplifies the American dream: the opportunity to achieve one’s goals through hard work and persistence. He started a successful software company while in high school, ran a team of developers for an outside company while in college, and, after graduation, worked for Bell Labs. He then formed his own software development company, the sale of which allowed him to move to Bozeman where he created, in a spare bedroom, Right Now Technologies. It grew into an international company with 11,000 employees; 500 of those jobs, with salaries averaging near $90,000 annually, were right here in Montana.

Following the sale of that company, he continued giving back to Montana by starting and financing several university-level computer science programs, establishing successful programs in entrepreneurship, and giving significant support to charitable causes.

His positions on national issues reflect Montana values: defense of the second amendment, importance of access to public land, protecting farmers and ranchers from burdensome regulations, protecting Social Security and Medicare for Montana’s seniors, defending our borders, deporting criminal illegal aliens, banning sanctuary cities, and a balanced budget.

When I mark my ballot, I will think of the serious issues facing our nation and vote for the best qualified candidate to represent me and Montana in Congress: Greg Gianforte.

Penny Jarecki,

Polson
