I’m supporting Emily Dean for the Helena City Commission because I believe she has the strong leadership skills and temperament to address the issues that come before the commission. She does not exhibit extreme bias and is a thoughtful listener. We need a change in our city commission, and I believe she will provide that needed change. In recent years, city leadership has attempted to make changes which they believe are good business decisions, only to make the same mistake twice. They are being led by someone who has no history with this city and some of its unique operations.
Emily has deep Montana roots. She grew up in Helena and has a great appreciation for its history. She has a respect for those who have worked hard for local causes, including city volunteer boards, and will seek to continue to make the city of Helena and it facilities serve the community in the best possible way.
Join me in voting for Emily Dean.
