I am supporting Kim Gillan for Congress. Kim has been a friend of my family for many years. She is truly concerned for the well-being of the middle class, including small business owners and wage earners.
Kim stood up against gender discrimination when she opposed using gender to set insurance rates and retirement plan benefits. National studies show that women pay higher rates when gender is used to determine premiums.
In her 16 years as a Montana legislator, Kim Gillan has approached leadership with trusted statesmanship and a willingness to listen and work with lawmakers on both side of the aisle.
Examples of this are the innovative graduated driver’s license bill that passed with broad-based support and the recent anti-bullying bill. While serving on the taxation committee, Kim demonstrated her ability to get things done with a clear understanding of the economics that make a healthy economy.
We need someone in Washington who understands the needs of hard-working Montanans and will work for us. Kim Gillan is the working family’s choice for U.S. Congress.
