Please vote "No" to Magdalena Bowen. I have been a Physician in this community for over 20 years. While treating patients over the past 3-5 years, I have repeatedly witnessed the devastating consequences of Standing Master Bowen's rulings in Gallatin Family Court including destroyed families, damaged reputations, derailed careers, financial hardship and traumatized children. These families are afraid to speak out because many of them are still involved in ongoing cases and fear judicial retaliation. So today, I am their voice.

Magdalena Bowen does not deserve the privilege and honor of presiding as a judge or standing master in Bozeman/Gallatin County. Please vote "No" to Magdalena Bowen and give these families and children some sense of justice and hope.

Letter Policy

The Chronicle encourages letters from readers who reside in our coverage area. Letters should be no more than 300 words and must include the writer’s first and last name (no initials), home address and daytime phone number. Addresses and phone numbers may be used for verification but will not be published. Letters may be edited for grammar, taste, brevity and libel. Due to the volume of submissions, the Chronicle cannot publish every letter it receives. The Chronicle reserves the right to reject letters based on content or length, and will not knowingly print letters sent to other publications. Thank-you letters, letters written in poetic style or dominated by scripture quotations and those written by students as class assignments will not be published.
