Thank you to the voters of House District 65 (southeast Bozeman) for entrusting me as their representative to the Montana Legislature. Based on the district's interests, my focus continues to be on the following priorities:

  • Expand and diversify our economy
  • Ensure a strong public education system and affordable tuition
  • Assure health care works for Montanans
  • Build a balanced budget that meets our basic needs, protects the vulnerable, and invests in our future
  • Advance civil dialogue and our shared sense of community, and
  • Protect clean air and water and access to rivers and streams

For those interested in details about the 2013 Legislative Session, a list of the bills, and their status is here.

I continue to work on the above priorities after the Session, as well as serve as vice chair of the Water Policy Interim Committee and one of four delegates to the Pacific Northwest Economic Region  Please contact me if there are additional issues or opportunities these committees should or could address. 

Beyond official Legislative activities, I work hard to keep in touch with HD65 residents and their interests and needs. You can reach me at, or 406-570-1917. You can sign up to receive legislative updates by e-mail by clicking the blue button at right and following the instructions. Past updates are archived below. And during Sessions, you can send me and other legislators messages in various ways, described here, and track Legislative activities by audio and video, in both real-time and archived. Selected hearings and meetings are broadcast on local TV channel 63 (Bresnan).

A BIG thank you to Senator Larry Jent for announcing my candidacy for re-election in 2012; I was in Helena in interim committee meetings so couldn't attend the Bozeman event. View the video here.
