The Earth Day Expo at Flathead Valley Community College was well-attended and fun!  There were so many exhibits and booths and speakers hosted by so many organizations working to make the world a better place!  Debo is a strong supporter of conservation and wildlife and clean energy!

Support Monica Tranel for U.S. Congress!

Monica Trenel and Debo Powers

Monica Tranel spoke to a standing-room-only crowd at a fundraiser in Kalispell.  Hopefully, Monica will replace absentee Congressman Ryan Zinke who is best known for his numerous ethics violations and his attempts to eliminate National Monuments when he was Secretary of Interior.  He continues to lie about his support for public lands. We need Monica!

Legislative Listening Tour

The Legislative Listening Tour arrived in Columbia Falls after meeting with citizens in towns all over Montana.  Many people spoke to Legislators about issues that concerned them:  Affordable Housing, Medicaid Expansion and Health Insurance, high Property Taxes, underfunded Public Schools, Mental Health services and Suicide rates, clean-up of the CFAC Super Fund Site, and Water Quality.

Support Shannon O’Brien for State Superintendent of Public Instruction

Two Public School Champions

Two public school champions–Shannon O’Brien and Debo Powers.  Shannon is running for State Superintendent of Public Instruction.  Public education in Montana is currently threatened by low teacher pay, budget cuts, teacher recruitment problems, and a poorly managed Office of Public Instruction. This needs to change!  Elect these two Champions of Public Education!

 

Winter Interlocal for the North Fork

The Winter Interlocal was held this week in the Community Room at Glacier National Park.  Interlocal meetings are held twice a year for North Fork landowners to meet with representatives from all of the national and state agencies who manage the public lands in the North Fork. Flathead County also sends people mainly to talk about the North Fork Road.  Scientists who are conducting research in the North Fork report on their work.  Each group presents information regarding the North Fork and answers questions from landowners.  Landowner groups also give reports.  Debo gave the report from the North Fork Preservation Association.
