Keogh will help protect public lands
Rita Wolfe, Missoulian Letter to the Editor
I am writing to endorse Connie Keogh for House District 91, which generally includes the Rattlesnake area through downtown and over to University Avenue.
She brings years of personal and professional experience to this race, including leadership skills, teaching experience and the "can do" attitude honed from years of hard work on the southcentral Montana ranch where she grew up.
She believes that public lands are critical to our quality of life. She understands that public lands are crucial for the clean air and water that make our communities livable, and they are what makes the outdoor recreation economy thrive in Montana.
Keogh supports keeping public lands in public hands, protecting Montana's constitutional guarantee of a clean and healthful environment, continuing full funding to Habitat Montana, and empowering the Office of Outdoor Recreation to provide resources to rural communities to help them grow from the recreation boom.
