I am your neighbor, and for the first time I am running to represent us in north-central Billings. I decided to run for the legislature because I believe the following:


We face important decisions about our future that include energy, education, and our environment. I want to work to help improve that future.
We must protect public access to our public lands and water.
We need to get Montana’s economy back on track.
We must support energy conservation and expand renewable energy development, providing good paying jobs, a new energy future and a healthy environment.

We must ensure that quality higher education is accessible and possible for anyone who wants it.

Scorecards

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.

An overview for scorecards in all 50 states can be found on this page. To contribute to the list of Texas scorecards, email suggestions to scorecards@ballotpedia.org.

Please see our writing guidelines if you would like to add results from an individual scorecard to this legislator's profile.
