|• Local Government|
Garner's website highlighted the following campaign themes:
|“||Though I have never before sought political office I can no longer sit idle while I see some in our legislature vote to raise your taxes while voting to put money in their own pockets.
It is time to put our community first! I am concerned about the influence that out of state money plays in our elections and in the decision making of some of our legislators. I am disappointed that there was no significant property tax or income tax relief for most of you last session.
It has been said it is not the ramblings of the wicked but rather the silence of the good that men should fear. I can no longer stand by and watch as some in our state wait for guidance from national committees before they vote rather than asking the counsel of those they govern. This community deserves better.
As part of this effort I am vowing to never take money for my campaign from a person or a business that doesn’t live or do business in the Flathead. If elected I will not vote to put money in my own pocket at your expense and I will vote for meaningful tax relief for you. I will honor our promises to our veterans and public servants while working hard to make sure we limit government spending and growth. I will always put you first.

Legislative scorecards are used to evaluate elected public officials based on voting record. Some scorecards are created by political advocacy groups with a focus on specific issues, while others are developed by newspapers and are broad in scope. Scorecards are meant to be used as a tool for voters to have a quick picture of whether their views align with a particular legislator's record.
Because scorecards can be specific to particular issues or general to a state’s legislative term, for example, each report should be considered on its own merits. Each entity that publishes these reports uses different methodologies and definitions for the terms used.
Please see our writing guidelines if you would like to add results from an individual scorecard to this legislator's profile.
