Rep Powers Lives a Montana Lifestyle

Representative Debo Powers lives off the electric grid in a solar-powered cabin across the North Fork of the Flathead River from Glacier National Park in grizzly bear country. She has a garden and greenhouse and stores food in a root cellar.  In addition, she heats with wood and cross-country skis every day during the winter.  In the summer, she hikes on remote trails, mountain bikes, and floats the river when she isn’t staffing a fire lookout.  She is a Montanan through and through.

Rep Powers Talks to Cooney and Schreiner

At a recent Cooney for Governor Rally in Kalispell, Rep Powers spoke to Mike Cooney and Casey Schreiner about their commitment to public lands, public education, and healthcare for Montanans. For those who support these things, the choice could not be more clear.  Mike Cooney’s opponent is not a friend of our public lands.
