Big on Bennett

Posted on Thu, Sep 30, 2010 at 4:00 AM

Residents of the Rattlesnake, Seeley Lake and the rest of House District 92, I am pleased to write and urge your support of Bryce Bennett for state representative.

Bryce has deep roots in both Montana, coming from a family with generations of Montana history, and Missoula, as a graduate of Big Sky High School and the University of Montana. Furthermore, Bryce has worked at the legislature as staff for the Fish, Wildlife and Parks Committee; he has learned about the hurly-burly of a legislative session the only way someone can: by being there. Bryce will hit the ground running and I am confident he will be an especially effective freshman legislator. Finally, Bryce has been a community organizer for more than a decade. He knows what it is to work with people to ensure government responds to their needs and he’ll take that spirit of service with him to the legislature.

Beyond Bryce’s personal qualifications, I am proud to support Bryce as the Democratic nominee. The last several state legislatures have been narrowly divided. Good bills died on tie votes in the last session because of party-line splits, and in 2007, Republicans selected a divisive Speaker of the House, resulting in disorderly conduct that could have been avoided. Of all the votes the representative of House District 92 will cast during the legislative session, the vote for Speaker of the House may be the most critical. My vote for Bryce is a vote of confidence for the Democratic caucus and Democrats’ proven track record of fiscal responsibility and good governance of the state of Montana.

Thanks for casting your vote this November 2nd.

Jason Wiener

Ward 1 Councilman

Missoula
