Jim Brown for Supreme Court

The Missoula County Republican Party is honored to endorse Public Service Commission Chairman Jim Brown for the Montana Supreme Court.  Senator Daines, Governor Gianforte, Congressman Rosendale, and Attorney General Knudsen have all endorsed Commissioner Brown citing his strict judicial philosophy, knowledge and commitment to the rule of law.  The Montana Republican Party has noted that electing Jim Brown will begin to restore integrity and confidence in Montana’s judicial system which has suffered over the past years from politicization by the Democrat Party.  Montana voters need to reject liberal activist judges who are weak on crime and oppose the second amendment which is characteristic of Brown’s opponents, and we need to elect judges who will stand for law and order and uphold the constitution.  Jim Brown will be that judge.  Please join us in voting for Jim Brown for the Montana Supreme Court in the June 7, 2022 primary election.

Update to Zoning Regs

  • by

Please review and comment on Missoula County’s proposed zoning regulations. Public meetings are scheduled, check the link below. The County didn’t provide a deadline, but the last public meeting is August 18.

In the County’s own words “Balancing the need for housing with protecting resources is one of the cornerstones of the new code. Conservation design, which is the clustering of homes on a portion of property to leave the remainder undeveloped, plays a key role in this strategy. Clustering development to preserve the best agricultural areas respects individuals’ rights to develop while supplying the community’s need for local agriculture. The proposed code also provides agricultural users opportunities to supplement their farming income through uses like agritourism.

No worries, the code is only 375 pages. Probably not too many rules in regulations in it.

Tester, voting against election integrity

  • by

From the Montana GOP

HELENA, Montana – Today, Senator Tester’s deeply flawed S.1, or the deceptively named “For the People Act”, failed on the Senate floor. This radical, federal election takeover bill is another example of a far-left power grab to gain control of our Federal Elections to ensure Democrat control in Washington, D.C.

“This afternoon, Senate Democrats, including Senator Tester, showed their true colors by voting in favor of the radical S.1, or “For the People Act” – which really isn’t for the people at all, and would be an absolute disaster for our country,” said Chairman Don “K” Kaltschmidt. “It would have completely eliminated voter ID laws, used taxpayer dollars to fund Democrat attack ads, and undermine the work the Montana Legislature passed this legislative session to strengthen the integrity of our elections. It would also have forced states to allow ballot harvesting, automatically register voters, and completely disregard the Constitution.

The Constitution is clear that the ‘Times, Places, and Manner of holding elections’ lies with the Montana legislature, and Senator Tester should be ashamed of his attempt to disregard our legislature’s work for his own political gain. Montanans support election integrity, and I am grateful for both Senator Daines and Congressman Rosendale’s steadfast opposition to this radical proposal.”

Get Involved in County Government

  • by

There are a large number of boards, governing committees and commissions that direct policy and advise the Board of County Commissioners. Go to https://www.missoulacounty.us/community/boards-commissions to read about them. Each description has information on when and where the meetings are held. People who can spare the time and are interested can apply to be on one of the boards https://boards.missoulacounty.us/apply/.

Republicans are invited to apply for any of these boards. It is important for us to get volunteers to get involved because the county departments and commissions get a lot of ideas about policy, resolutions, and funding from these boards. Don’t agree with the way the county deals with homelessness or health mandates or anything else? Getting on one of these boards or attending meetings is a way for your voice to be heard directly by your elected officials. If you have political aspirations, the boards are a way to ‘get you foot in the door’ of Missoula politics. 

When these boards or committees brief the county commission, they are generally public meetings announced as Commissioners’ public meetings https://www.missoulacounty.us/government/administration/commissioners-office/commissioners-meeting-minutes-agenda-portal. You can sign up to receive a weekly email of the upcoming meetings https://www.missoulacounty.us/news/e-notification, although this information is also posted https://www.missoulacounty.us/community/boards-commissions.

Please consider volunteering.
