Rosendale’s values not inline with Montanans’

Print Article

Itís not what he says, but how he votes.

Montana is a state in which 10 percent of our population are veterans, a high percentage are 65 years of age or older. While serving in the Montana Legislature, Matt Rosendale supported privatizing the Columbia Falls Veteranís Home. He also opposed a new veteranís home in Butte.

Montana is about one-third federal public lands, over 27 million acres. Real estate developer Rosendale is on record advocating transferring these federal public lands to the state, which could then be sold, and then posted ďNo Trespassing, Keep Out.Ē

In general, Montanans support equal pay for equal work. Rosendale helped kill the Montana Paycheck Fairness Act, Senate Bill 158. His votes against protections for victims of domestic violence, sexual assault and stalking, like House Bill 306, hurt women and families.

Please join me in voting to keep Jon Tester our Montana U.S. Senator.

óRob Bullis,

Helena
