Guest Post by Rep. Ryan Lynch

It is with great enthusiasm that I write to encourage the voters to send Zac Perry back to the legislature.  Having worked with Representative Perry in the last legislative session, I can attest to his significance for Columbia Falls and the Flathead.   He has proven himself to be a motivated leader with the ability to … Continue reading

Preserving The Timber Jobs We Have Left

With the recent news that Weyerhaeuser is closing down two of its mills in Columbia Falls, I have experienced many different emotions. How is this possible when the ink has yet to dry on the paper proclaiming that Plum Creek is now Weyerhaeuser? Many conversations I hear at work, the coffee shop and grocery store … Continue reading

Fighting For Our Montana Veterans’ Home

In 2011 the Montana State Veterans’ Home in Columbia Falls was threatened with closure or privatization.

Investing in Montana Communities

I understand and respect the current HD3 incumbent’s position against future tax incentives and subsidies while leaving those already in place alone.  This position hit home with me the other day as I was filling up my gas tank at $3.70 a gallon. The incumbent claims the incentives that enabled the power agreement between Flathead … Continue reading

The Importance of Public Education

A strong connection exists between jobs, our local economy, and quality education.  Businesses consider many factors in deciding where to set up shop. The primary factors include the presence of a positive business climate, local workforce skill levels, and the quality of the K-12 public education system. The current representative of House District 3 fails … Continue reading

I recently sent in a letter to the editor of the Hungry Horse News.  Click here  for the link or continue reading. A few weeks ago, our HD 3 representative described his “quandary,” with the tax reform pledge. In this editorial, he voiced his opposition to tax incentives for renewable energy.  Interestingly enough, I recently read in local … Continue reading
