Court says on her website:[1]

I have and will continue to support and push for legislation that supports a sound economy, a good education system, and clean water and air. I believe small businesses serve as the backbone of our state’s economy by creating and providing jobs. I started and operated a successful small business in Montana for 25 years. I know firsthand what it takes to keep this vital segment of our economy strong and growing. My business experience is needed at the state legislature to make the tough decisions to get our Montana economy moving again.
