Mr. Gianforte,

Killing a wolf, breaking the law. It makes us so sad that we have to call you our governor. 

We wonder, honestly, what you were thinking. We worry that you don't think, but act from a place of entitlement and don't even realize how outrageous your behavior is to most Montanans (indeed to most Americans and beyond). 

We need someone leading us who is honorable. We need someone who cares about the environment, who cares about climate change. We need someone who cares about and listens to real people, everyone across the political and social and cultural spectrum, not just the rich and powerful and single minded.

But first — is it seriously so much to ask? — We need you to stop embarrassing us by body slamming news people and killing wolves and breaking laws. 

Montanans need you to be better, Mr. Gianforte.

We deserve better.

Scott Bischke


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 Addresses and phone numbers may be used for verification but will not be published.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written in poetic style or dominated by scripture quotations and those written by students as class assignments will not be published.
