Register To Vote!
One of the most important rights we enjoy as citizens of Montana and the USA is the right to vote for the people who make and uphold our laws. This right is the foundation upon which our democratic form of government is based. Many people in the world do not share this right. It's a civic duty we should all feel privileged to perform.

Passed away Sept. 24, 2017
Norman T. Strayer peacefully passed away on September 24, 2017 at age of 66. Norm was a hardworking and loving husband, father, "pops", brother, uncle, son, co-worker and friend. You would always find Norm with his big black hat, a story ready to tell and a helping hand. Norm was so in love with his family. He enjoyed hunting, exploring the countryside, panning for gold, teaching skills and sharing stories. Norm was an exceptionally intelligent and caring man and he would want all of us to celebrate his amazing life.
Norm is survived by his beautiful and loving wife Kay, their amazing children and their spouses Brandee (Chris), Ty (Ashley), and Tiffanie (Ryan). "Pops" leaves behind his 4 grandchildren, who he adored, Jace, Calista, Jackson, and Noxon. He is also survived by his sister Sue Rosa and numerous aunts, uncles, nieces and nephews.
We will celebrate this wonderful man on Thursday, September 28th, on the top of McDonald Pass, at 11:30 am with a reception to follow at the Hampton hotel in Helena. Condolences may be sent to the Hampton at 725 Carter Drive, Helena MT 59601
Petition Governor Gianforte
Most Montanans agree that working people should have the freedom to join together in strong unions if they choose to. Right to work bills are an attack on Montana workers’ freedom to negotiate, and would affect the quality public services we all rely on. For almost a year now, nurses, teachers, corrections officers, firefighters, state troopers, and all other essential workers have been putting their health at risk to keep us safe and keep our communities functioning. Now, through legislature, their wages, benefits, pensions and voices are under attack. It’s one heck of a way to say “thank you.” Governor Greg Gianforte claimed he was on the side of Montana’s workers during his campaign — now it’s time to prove that he’s a man of his word. Sign our petition to tell Gianforte and the Montana Legislature to support our frontline workers by publicly opposing HB251 and SB89, as well as the following bills. HB 461, SB 346, SB 228, HB 289
