Mike O’Herron, candidate for Ward 5’s city council seat is holding a meet & greet this Wednesday. This is an excellent opportunity to meet a candidate who is an independent, committed to bringing balanced leadership and representation to Ward 5.

I really like Mike. Off the top of my head, O’Herron was the original Chicago Hot Dog stand micro-business owner that any downtown dweller is well-familiar. He and his wife have put together a scholarship program themselves. At the city council forum last week – and darn if I don’t have my notes here – he spoke of recently acting as an ambassador, of sorts, escorting two potential business investors around the area in an effort to do his part to bring better jobs to Missoula.

I do believe one of the two have committed to bringing their business here. It’s one of the things I intend to pick his brain about on Wednesday.

If you read the most recent Missoulian article that mentioned Mike, you’ll know he’s committed to creating an environment here in Missoula for good-paying jobs. When you listen to him speak, he talks about finding out what kind of future Missoulians want – and from there, he wants to help make that happen.

I really like Mike’s commitment to public involvement. I also appreciate his commitment to policy, not politics. Mike O’Herron wants solutions. He feels Ward 5 has been essentially unrepresented due to the lack of leadership of its current representation. Mike wants to bring a real voice and true representation back to Ward 5 constituents.

Here’s the info on Mike O’Herron’s meet and greet:

an oil spill goes undetected for at least two weeks? (they don’t even really know how long it has been leaking.) and we are supposed to believe their estimate of the amount of oil spilled? 

where in the hell is the oversight of these pipelines? where are the safeguards? does anybody know? 

a brief description of fx energy’s operations in montana

Activities and Assets in the United States

We produce oil from approximately 10,732 gross (10,418 net) acres in Montana and 400 gross (128 net) acres in Nevada.


We did not drill any wells in Montana during 2010.  We are evaluating plans for drilling in Montana during 2011.  During 2011, we plan to deepen several wells in our 10,000 acre Cut Bank field to take core samples from the Bakken and related formations for laboratory testing.  We sell all of our Montana production, which constitutes over 94% of our total oil production, to Cenex, a regional refiner and marketer.  We are in discussions with other oil and gas companies with a view to possibly investigating the Bakken potential over a broader area.
