Tester champion for Montana’s outdoor heritage

Print Article

If you’ve spent any amount of time enjoying Montana’s incredible natural beauty, chances are you’ve benefited from public access to public lands. This November, protecting public lands will be on the ballot—and Jon Tester is a proven champion for Montana’s outdoor heritage.

Jon has always fought to keep public lands in public hands. One example is the Blackfoot Clearwater Stewardship Act. The Act was developed by Montanans with different viewpoints (snowmobilers, mountain bikers, horseriders, loggers, wilderness advocates) and Jon introduced it in the Senate. Unfortunately, Senator Daines has not signed on to co-sponsor the bill nor has Congressman Gianforte introduced companion legislation in the House.

In contrast to Jon Tester, his opponent this November is East Coast developer Matt Rosendale who has pushed to transfer our public lands. When Rosendale sees public lands, he sees an opportunity to develop their natural resources. He’s been a developer for most of his adult life, developing farmland into housing subdivisions. Now, wealthy landowners and developers across Montana have been dumping money into Rosendale’s campaign because they know they can count on him to prioritize their interests.

If you want your children and grandchildren to be able to enjoy the same beautiful Montana lands that we get to enjoy, you should vote for Jon this November. Jon can be counted on to fight for all Montanans — not just wealthy developers.

Debo Powers, Polebridge
