I will work to....
For MT House District 6
I am Amy Regier, Republican candidate for House District #6. Born and raised in the Flathead Valley and having graduated from West Valley School, Flathead High and Montana State College of Nursing, I have a very deep appreciation and love for this part of Montana.
Special opportunities abound here both professionally and recreationally. As an RN, employment at Kalispell Regional has provided experiences for me in clinical areas as well as management. Summer days find me backcountry hiking and camping, white water rafting, or picking huckleberries. And I certainly don’t want Montana to become like San Francisco!
Much can be done legislatively to better serve Montanans. Taxes are a burden for many, yet the state of Montana’s surplus budget indicates too much tax revenue is being collected. Some of these surplus funds need to be used for infrastructure such as water and sewer systems, road improvements and K-12 school needs. Property taxes could be reduced by having the Lodging Tax that currently goes to the State General Fund go back to the cities and counties where it was generated. Business equipment tax should be eliminated as it is an obstacle to increased wages. Creating private sector jobs is my priority.
I will also work to preserve water rights held by land owners and municipalities in the Flathead. Adequate reliable water is critical to agriculture and the quality of life in our valley. Protecting our clear, clean lakes in NW Montana from invasive aquatic species is imperative.
I will defend our Second Amendment right to bear arms as well as work to preserve our hunting and fishing heritage. Responsible forest management will promote the wood product industry as well as increase productivity while also reducing smoke and improving air quality during fire season. I will always respect life from conception to natural death.
If you would like to talk with me regarding legislation or other issues of importance to you, call me at 253-8421 or email email@example.com. I would appreciate your vote in the June primary election. Vote REGIER for conservative Republican representation.
