Considering those looking @ MT Governor for 2020, Looks like a good set Cooney (Born in MT, grad from UM, '89 Sec State MT+) or (R) Fox (Born in MT, grad from UM, '13 AG MT+) holds a strong potential to be the righteous ones for the MT mud slinging contest to begin...
Now we need to get some momentum around the strategy and put Conservation & Outdoor issues at the center of the Gubernatorial discussion! Please forward this email and invite your friends, and consider posting to social media. We've got 3 events lined up for March 9th, see attached for specifics:
Monday, 9 March
11am-11:45am - we release the strategy at the Cherry Creek fishing access. Tim and I will speak for 10 minutes, if anyone else wants to say something (perhaps on a specific topic, just let me know, the more the merrier but no pressure). There will be a microphone and podium. .
12:00-1:30pm - immediately after, we have a lunch at the Club Grill to discuss the strategy with a broader swath of people. This is not hand-picked group ready-made for a softball discussion. We will be inviting leaders in this arena to get real feedback. The idea here is a solid conversation on collaboration - what works, what doesn't, etc. Tim and I are committed to continuing to the get the best ideas on the table.
5:00pm - @ the R Bar this is our big event - a fundraiser and open to the public (beer and food provided, Mike Hope will quarantine off the back area for us).
Feel free to email this along with the attached invite or to save the image and post to social media. We'd really like the R Bar event to be posted far and wide, to get the public engaged. Please share and let me know if there is ANYTHING I can do - my cell: 406-223-8302.
Like you, I am invested in this topic. I was born literally 10 days after my mother went to deer camp for a week - she cut it close, but that just shows the value we put on getting into the wild. I had the great fortune to be born into a hook and bullet family. As I look to the next generation of Sportsmen issues - through the eyes of my 8, 6 and 3 year old - just know that Tim and I are absolutely committed to Conservation and Outdoor issues.
