Serving Proudly As The Voice Of Valley County Since 1913

Gianforte Concludes Listening Tour

Montana’s sole representative in the U.S. House has concluded a listening tour with stops at each of the state’s 56 counties. Congressman Greg Gianforte embarked on the trip, which covered over 3,700 miles across the state, after being sworn into office in mid-June.

A Sept. 5 press release focused on wildfires currently burning around the region:

“I commend the efforts of our firefighters under these difficult circumstances,” Gianforte said. “And I am committed to working for common sense forest management reforms that will mitigate the threat of disastrous forest fires.”

According to Gianforte, common themes raised by Montanans include the dangers of federal overreach and family values.

“There is a great sense of independence in Montana,” said Gianforte. “Folks are committed to their families and communities.”
