Re: “Did Ryan Zinke go AWOL?

I forgot to add that my emails to his office made at the same time, to date, haven't been answered.

Re: “Did Ryan Zinke go AWOL?

I called and emailed his office weeks ago. On call I was told prospective appointees didn't need to vote as they were getting ready for their "hearing". As it stands Zinke has left his MT constituents without a voice in Congress. Here's a good site to subscribe to for how the MT congressional delegates vote(or DON"T vote) on bills.

Re: “Council crowdsources tax relief with 'Betty's Fund'

More convoluted progressive logic. OK yes we're sucking your blood. But look, we're setting up a blood donation center to help you out. We care.

As someone once said "IT'S THE SPENDING STUPID!!!! That's the bleeding you STOP!

Re: “Engen's return

It's apparent that the position of mayor is too overwhelming for Engen. First he can't stop a food addiction. Corrects it after tax $$$$ cover his operation. Now for alcohol abuse. Also complements from tax $$$$$. What will be his next psychological demon? For his own health, those who love him and the Missoulians who he claims he loves and is dedicated to, he should resign.

Re: “One job, one vote?

Dan Brooks, your last paragraph says it all. BTW if the UM is removed from the Missoula landscape, the so called permanent Missoula "conservative" residents would probably outnumber the "liberal socialist progressive" part- time student residents.

Re: “Left behind

Political parties aren't even mentioned in the Constitution, yet they yield a lot of power regarding rule making. Get rid of them and/or definitely get rid of taxpayers financing their primaries.

Re: “Dept. of relocation

"Executive Director Mary Poole didn't know how many people would show up to an open house in a nondescript office building on Stephens Avenue, but her group's work does tend to act as a magnet. There was barely room to set up the TV news camera Poole hadn't expected to see."

How could Mary Poole know how many would show up? After all the open house wasn't announced any where other than the Soft Landing FB page and probably by special invite to the friends of.... BTW the address that was omitted ( as was in Missoulian article) is 939 Stephens , Suite C Missoula. Wonder what the monthly rent is? And who is the landlord?
