Re: “Meet Lisa Triepke, the candidate who wants to unseat John Engen

Slight correction, Ms Triepke was elected to the MCPS Board of Trustees in May, 2015, and served a very short time before resigning in July 201; not a year as stated in the article.

Re: “Meet Lisa Triepke, the candidate who wants to unseat John Engen

So re-electing someone who has no self control of his personal life and was drunk on the job is a better option?

Re: “Shooting the moon

If I learned one thing from nearly three years in Missoula, this is one Sadass group of spendaholic libs that LOVES, LOVES to piss away taxpayer dollars! Why not add equipment and a full time police officer to do the background check work? "Yeah, yeah, that's the ticket. And we can raise taxes some more to pay for it!" (LOL) Meanwhile, go over and walk Greenough Park. It's a complete disgrace how it's being maintained. Any city council member taking any interest in something they really should be concerned about? Crickets. (Rant off.)

Re: “Meet Lisa Triepke, the candidate who wants to unseat John Engen

"I don't understand your question."
"I don't know. I don't really understand your question."
"I'm still not sure what your question's asking me."
"I'm confused by your line of questioning, is what I'll say."
"So that's why I was confused, because that's kind of two separate issues. So are you asking about public services or homelessness?"

Stupidity or feigned ignorance? Either way, she's not qualified to be mayor.

Re: “Meet Lisa Triepke, the candidate who wants to unseat John Engen

Reading this article (mainly her quotes) was painful and exhausting. It was kind of like re-living a Trump debate. Hollow, uninformed, confusing, scattered, full of mistruths, and broad-stroke garbage. I am glad somebody is challenging the Mayor. It is good for Democracy. But she seems wildly unqualified. My advice would be for her to go back to serving wings at Desperado and calling people "fucking liars" in school board meetings.

Re: “Ruth Swaney takes her leave, leaving City Council with an appointment to make

Yes, erlyirn, the article notes that she took another job out of state. Brad Tyer, editor

Re: “Ruth Swaney takes her leave, leaving City Council with an appointment to make

Had you been paying attention to other stories you would have seen she took another job out of state.

What I find interesting about this is Ward 2 elected two conservatives to that seat yet the council appointed someone who was the complete opposite of what the voters elected. So when the people speak it falls on deaf ears and they can expect another rubber stamp councilman or woman.

Re: “Ruth Swaney takes her leave, leaving City Council with an appointment to make

Did her job at UM end?
Was she one of the many cuts?
Trying to piece together the timeline of events. So many councilors have left in mid-term the past few years.

Re: “Prez hunt: GE exec a finalist, again

Yeah, that's what we need : Yet another corporatist. Wall Street and the corporatists have taken COMPLETE control of this country, at all levels, and look at the mess they've made of it !

Re: “At UM, Tom Crady gambles on a scholarship gambit

Meanwhile enrollment at MSU is up again this year; that's 10 years in a row. If you want to increase out-of-state student enrollment you need to recruit them, and you need to make sure students can access their financial aid money. Make all the excuses you want to and then go to Bozeman to find out how it's done!

Re: “Feeling the pulse: UM dining gets a new tool

What DOES the U of M kitchen cook/prepare/serve that IS locally grown? Montana grown mint in tabouli? Montana dairy products? Locally grown beef, pork, poultry & lamb? Where do their soy products originate?
One can make their own hummus in a crock pot overnight. I've been doing it for going on 40+ years.

Re: “Selling kava with a wink and a buzz

With time, kava drinkers often come to like the taste of many types of kava. Also, if you are healthy and have a healthy liver and do not drink kava in conjuction with any drugs that could compromise your liver, traditionally prepared kava is not just harmless but quite healthy for you, in moderation.

Re: “Prez hunt: GE exec a finalist, again

Let's do a quick run-down of how we got into this mess:

UM football players had a huge problem with drinking and raping.
World-class writers wrote about this.
Parents found out about it and stopped sending their kids to Missoula.
UM and Missoula did not stop spending money, however.
Then there was no money.
No one knew what to do.
The highly-paid people 'in charge' decided to cut workers.
The highest-paid State of Montana employee decided to fire UM's president.
He's safe in his job because Bullock has no balls, nor do the Regents.
He then hand-picked the successor.
Missoula and Montana seemed to think this solved all their problems.

Boy, you can't fix stupid.

Re: “Lisa Triepke campaign surrogate Wes Spiker goes off script

This is very helpful. I just saw a little flyer supporting Triepke in my local grocery. I wondered who she was.
Now I know.
She won't get my vote, Spiker won't get my business, and hopefully, I won't have to not shop at that store that I really like!
Yuck!

Re: “Lisa Triepke campaign surrogate Wes Spiker goes off script

Well.... this simplifies so much! I just saw a sign advocating for Triepke in my local grocery store and wondered who she was.
Well, now I know. She won't get my vote, Spiker's business won't get mine, and I'll be thinking about whether I continue to do business with that store.
Dammit, I really like that store!

Re: “Former Five Valleys Land Trust Director Grant Kier takes aim at Greg Gianforte's House seat

This sounds promising. And almost anyone would be an improvement over Gianforte.

So, Greg Strandberg, did you actually read this article? Mr. Kier has worked for a decade with all kinds of people all over western Montana. It's would make sense that he actually would understand the realities and concerns of many Montanans. Why would you think he doesn't?
