To do that I’ll have to go through a two-tier process.
- First I’ve got to get my name and message out to voters.
- Next I need to win the primary on June 3 against a tough opponent.
- Finally I need to win the general election in November 4.
This Montana 2014 Election Blog is just one piece of that overall process, and a rather small one I think. Most of the people voting for me, or at least living in my district, probably don’t spend a whole lot of time looking at Montana political blogs. In fact, I bet they spend about zero time doing so.
So what’s the point of this blog then?
I guess it’s just a way for me to get my thoughts and message out, perhaps refine them a bit. In other words I’d rather stick my foot in my mouth here on my own turf than standing on some voter’s welcome mat as they slam their door in my face.
And that’s why you’re reading this now. So who
Greg Strandberg for HD 98
I’m running because there are too many people struggling in Montana and too many young people leaving because they can’t find good jobs or certain futures here.
My top priority in the Legislature will be to promote the creation of more and better jobs throughout Montana. Our economy needs to benefit all of us and improve our standard of living. This is what I’ll fight for:
- Strong, lasting jobs with pay you can live on
- Security for our seniors, hope for our young
- Montana priorities over outside interests
- Environmental policies we’re proud to hand off to our kids
I taught English and worked as a writer there for 5 years before moving back to Missoula.
I have a wife named Evgenyia and a young son named Paul. My wife is from Russia and my son was born in Shenzhen, China, in 2011.
I currently write books for myself and others, as well as internet content for websites around the world. You can buy 25 of my books on Amazon.
My grandfather was elected to Montana Senate District 45 in 1990 from Havre. His name was Robert Hockett. I wish I had some of his political experience, but the truth is I don’t. I have none, but far from that being a detriment, I think it’s an advantage.
My Political Philosophies
How about those folks in Helena, you know, the ones that have been there for years? Have things improved for you because of their actions?
I’m willing to bet the answer is no, and I’m willing to bet you’re struggling just to stay where you are. And move ahead? Please! Each month I’ve got to start from scratch just so I can save up enough to pay the bills and do it all over again next month.
That’s frustrating, and I know too many Montana families are feeling those frustrations as well. I hope to bring those issues to the forefront in Helena, and get this much-needed discussion started on just how many people are having such a hard time today.
I hope you’ll join me in making that discussion possible by supporting my candidacy. Tell your friends, encourage people to register to vote and sign up for mail-in ballots, and even volunteer or donate funds yourself.
Getting elected isn’t the easiest thing in the world, but it is possible with your help. Please help me get elected – support Greg Strandberg for HD 98.
