In the June 7 primary election, I urge you to vote for David Severson for District 100. Dave has a passion for creating progressive change for Montana and the experience to bridge current political divides. I know this because Dave is my father.
Before I could even walk, Dave took me to organized marches for workers’ rights and unionization. Dave has been a teacher all his life, not only teaching high school journalism, but also teaching his daughter the importance of fighting for justice and building our community. As an adult beginning a career raising funds for nonprofit social service organizations in Montana, I know Dave will fight for justice and fairness. Nonprofits exist to “fill holes” in our society, Dave will ensure that nonprofits and people with less than enough resources don’t fall through the cracks, reforming our government systems to meet the needs of Montana people.
This job will take more than a passion for progressive politics, it will take an ability to bring people together. Dave’s experience as a union representative has given him the mediation skills to bring together diverse perspectives. Dave is an exemplary candidate, and given the opportunity, he will get things done in Montana.
