Franke Wilmer for Congress

Posted on Thu, May 24, 2012 at 4:00 AM

The Democratic Party has fielded an impressive group of candidates vying for Montana’s lone seat in the House of Representatives. But the one who stands out as the exceptional candidate is Franke Wilmer.

While her legislative experience and life story are compelling, what sets Wilmer apart are her unwavering commitment to human rights and her expertise in international affairs. She has published books on both subjects.

Since most of us, by definition, are not part of the one percent who control the wealth and power of the nation, we would be well served to have a representative who truly cares about our human rights and not just our economic status. And as we are obviously part of a global economy and world order, it would certainly benefit us to have our member of Congress be someone who understands the issues.

Franke Wilmer is that person. She is prepared to go to Washington, D.C., and represent all the people of Montana. And she is prepared to help lead this nation. She has the heart and mind to be one of our great Montana leaders.

We encourage you to vote for Franke Wilmer. Google her and learn more about her life, her character and her accomplishments. She is a special Montana woman and someone we are privileged to call a friend. We also want her to be our congressperson.

Robert and Linda Harris
