Montana Congressional Candidate Runs on Rural Healthcare Platform

As a Montana state lawmaker I have seen firsthand how important healthcare facilities are for the economies of our rural communities. Part of the reason I decided to run for office at 32 years old was the necessity of continuing Montana’s Medicaid expansion program. We were able to continue healthcare coverage for nearly 100,000 Montanans and pump over $500 million into our state economy each year. But, what equally earned my vote was the necessity of keeping our critical access rural hospitals open.

About 65% of Montanans are located in rural areas. Our state also has the second largest Congressional seat in the country. Yet, we continue to elect congressmen that put partisan politics before their constituents. When they undermine our health insurance market, when they side with Big Pharma, they contribute to our rural health crisis. As a former EMT, healthcare small business owner, and state lawmaker I have spent my adult life fighting for Montanans’ access to quality healthcare. But, there is more work to do in D.C.

I’m pleased because I don’t have to make a 4 ½-hour drive to get my infusion. It’s great that we can now have the therapy that I needed right here.

I’m very fortunate and so grateful for everything the center does for me. The wait is short and I’m in and out in no time. Without this local service, I couldn’t keep my job. I wouldn’t be able to take care of my family or enjoy my life.

They monitored me, they took care of me. The infection that was causing the pain began to go away. I can tell you now I’m able to stand on both legs. After the infusion therapy, I was able to resume the activity that I truly enjoy, playing the guitar and exploring the wonders of music.
