John Michael believes our legislative policies must promote economic growth and job creation as a top priority. As both a small business owner and someone who has worked for and with larger companies, John Michael believes in an environment that will allow the primary sector to thrive yet pave the course for welcoming new job industries into Montana. To accomplish this, we must use our resources wisely and hold our legislators accountable to smarter spending. While there have been positive signs of economic recovery lately, we need to stay focused on this critical issue and must continue to work toward building a Montana that will economically prosper in the twenty-first century.[4][3]


Building and maintaining a solid infrastructure is a core component of bolstering a stronger economy for Montana. John Michael believes this includes not only upgrading our current transportation and utility systems, but also looking toward the future and ensuring that Montana possesses the technological infrastructure to invite new job sectors to our great state. These advancements will also allow our businesses to access the resources they need to stay competitive.[5][3]
