This year I’ll be running for the Missoula City Council...again.
I ran in 2017 and lost big time, but I’ll give it another try this year (I intended to run in 2015 but never did so as I knew I’d be moving to another ward).
I’m running because we can do better in Missoula for lots of different people and in lots of different ways.
Missoula has many problems. I’ve pinpointed some that I feel need a lot of attention. I’ve also come up with some solutions.

Many of those articles are new, but many were written years ago. I began writing about Missoula issues on this website in 2014.
And I'm not the only one focusing on Missoula problems. Here's a great story about the city spending $8,000 to house homeless people in the depths of winter, and their decision to spend $25,000 on a dog sculpture.
Priorities. The city's are askew.
I’ll add more ideas as new issues crop up.
