Boy, sure hope the Governor doesn’t read this Missoulian article, otherwise he’ll have to head to town to protest the expenditure.

Of course – Drudge hasn’t picked up on it yet. Neither has Fox News. So maybe we’re in the clear.

Bryce Bennett hasn’t officially announced his run for Montana House District 92 yet – that comes at 5:30 p.m. this Tuesday at the Worden House at 328 East Pine – yet he’s already received the endorsement of state Superintendent of Public Instruction (and currently 4&20 b’bird ranked #1 Democrat in the state) Denise Juneau:

“Bryce Bennett has dedicated his career to making Montana a better place for everyone. A more convincing demonstration of leadership would be hard to find, and it’s a type of leadership badly needed in the Montana legislature.”

I like Bryce for a number of reasons, and one of ’em is that he has experience working in Helena, already. Bryce saw the nuts-and-bolts of the place while working in the 2009 legislative session for the Fish, Wildlife, and Parks and Federal Relations, Energy and Telecommunications Committees. That’s pretty big for me – and it’s a great way to hit the ground running…..especially when you consider that many head to Helena having not even attending a legislative hearing, yet alone read a piece of legislation. With that alone, Bryce is ahead of the curve.

Bryce enters the race to pick up Robin Hamilton’s seat, who has announced he won’t be running.

I do like Bennett’s comments on Juneau’s endorsement. They sum up some of the reasons why he is running…why he is worthy of your vote and why Denise is awesome:

Denise is someone I admired during her campaign and even more since she took office last year. She and I both care deeply for our education system and know that we can invest in no greater resource than the future of Montana students. We also share a passion for protecting the environment for future generations and I applaud her recent vote against allowing new coal mining in our state at Otter Creek.

The Special Olympics Five Valley’s Winter Games will be held this month – January 26th and 27th – at Lost Trail Powder Mountain.

Volunteers are needed to staff a number of positions. This is a great way to get out, enjoy the sun, meet some great people, and help contribute towards a wonderful event for some very special Montanans.

More games are being held elsewhere, too – the Southwestern Area Games are being held February 8th at Discovery. The Big Sky Winter Games are being held in Bozeman and Moonlight basin on February 21 and 22nd, while the State Winter Games are being held at Whitefish Mountain Resort February 28 through March 2nd.

You can download a volunteer form, or give a call to the volunteer hotline. Call the state office at 406-216-5327 for more information.
