I've known House District 81 candidate Rob Farris-Olsen most of his life. He attended Montessori at Central School and played soccer with my son, Ryan. As he's grown I've gotten to know him well and I firmly believe he will work hard to represent his friends and neighbors in HD81.
I support Rob because he works hard, is thoughtful and he does what he says he will do. These are the qualities I look for in candidates for public office, and they are the qualities I see in Rob. He has brought new energy and new ideas to the Helena City Commission. Rob is a tireless advocate for the people, the environment and the community. As a lawyer, he has prevented wrongful home foreclosures, promoted energy conservation, stood up to out-of-state corporations and fought for the rights of LGBTQ Montanans.
My decision to support Rob is personal. He represents progressive values, but is also committed to positively representing all the citizens of the district and Helena. We can trust him to deliver results. I know he'll be an outstanding legislator.
