Quote for the day…
People will get mad at you for speaking the truth, rather than being mad at the people who lied. – Unknown
Today’s independent commentary deals with these issues:
- The Western Word Poll
- Great Falls Municipal Election
- Reading Assignments
THE WESTERN WORD POLL:
Over the weekend, Lee Newspapers posted an interview with Montana Governor Greg Gianforte in which he “defended his administration’s policies toward the pandemic, which have included signing into law the nation’s only prohibition on private businesses requiring vaccines in the workplace, and several measures that limited the power of local health departments to implement measures to curb the virus’ spread.”
Please read the full interview HERE.
This week’s poll question asks, “What grade would you give Governor Greg Gianforte regarding his response to the pandemic?”
The results will be posted later this week.
GREAT FALLS MUNICIPAL ELECTION:
Some local conservatives are out in force attacking current Great Falls Mayor Bob Kelly, who is running for reelection.
As I said before, I’ve voted for Kelly in the municipal elections and I have also voted for his opponent, Fred Burow, in municipal elections.
I happened to catch some posts on E-City Beat about Kelly. They are also claiming “local media will squash you like a bug” if you say anything negative on posts about Kelly.
Even a former mayor attacked Kelly.
It’s pretty clear who will get my vote for mayor of Great Falls. I don’t think we need any more Trump supporters running/ruining Great Falls.
I guess we’ll see how much power the conservatives have in the Great Falls Municipal election.
Thanks to every candidate who is running for public office.
