Best Politician 

Mayor John Engen

The summer started with a bang for Mayor John Engen. The city emerged victorious in June from a long and heated legal battle over ownership of Missoula’s water utility, and the mayor publicly proclaimed the court’s ruling a “community vindication.” But the fight for what he sees as more efficient and effective local control of the city’s water is just one of the many ways Engen has opted to work in the public’s interest. From working the starting line at the annual YMCA Riverbank Run to facilitating discussions of expansive redevelopment projects along the Clark Fork, Engen continues to serve as a constant in our ever-changing city, and another Best of Missoula win is a strong indication that locals appreciate having him in their corner.
