Gianforte is the right pick for governor

To the editor:

Business experience and conservative leadership is desperately needed in Helena. For 16 years, liberal Democrats have controlled the governor’s office and frequently vetoed good legislation.

We must change that.

I came to see U.S. Rep. Greg Gianforte (R-Mont.) as a state leader years before he ran for office. Since then, he has served us well in Congress. We need him as governor.

I invited Gianforte to my small hometown to help mentor groups and individuals on high tech jobs long before he ran for public office. In recent years, as a congressman, he has held friendly meetings all over Montana, including rural communities, from Eureka to Ekalaka. He understands the many issues at play in this broad state.

He took our voices to Washington, D.C. I appreciate his hard work as a public servant. His skill set makes him an ideal candidate for governor.

Too often campaigns resort to name calling and misrepresentation of information. Gianforte will focus on the positive.

I support Greg Gianforte in his run for governor. His top-notch executive experience, great service in Congress and positive vision for Montana makes him my choice for governor.
