Every citizen should get out and vote. It’s our right and our duty to responsible citizenship. I’m lending my voice to the growing number of Montana citizens who support transparency, integrity, compassion. We should expect, even demand these qualities in all our public representatives.

Pat Flowers, candidate for SD 32, has all these attributes. Pat has lived, worked, recreated, and raised a family in Montana. He loves this state, its people, and its special resources that create our quality of life. He worked as a public servant in Montana Fish, Wildlife, and Parks spending countless hours bringing all voices to the table to produce workable solutions based upon sound management of our shared public resources. He donated many years to the nonprofit Bridger Ski Foundation helping them serve the youngest members of our community in their pursuit of healthy lifelong winter ski activities and opportunities.

Pat supports access to affordable health care for all Montanans. He supports the common-sense approach to a fair and sensible state budget so that our communities flourish. If you have the chance to meet him or hear him speak, you should do so. I am certain you will be encouraged for our future.
