Something is up with District 17 Senator Rowlie Hutton
From what I know of Rowlie he is not only a decent honest guy that has done a phenomenal job growing his church but is also one of the few people that call themselves Christian that actually “practice what they preach.” While I am sad to hear this news the first thing that comes to mind is what will happen with his Senate position?
From what I could find out tonight Rowlie has just resigned from his employment at the church and has not the Senate position. The people I talked to stressed that Senator Hutton has not resigned his Senate seat. It does stand to reason however that if he is taking a job in Nebraska his career as a Montana State Senator will be fast drawing to a close. Since Rowlie represents both Hill and Blaine County both the Hill County and the Blaine County Republican Central committees would be tasked with providing a list of qualified replacement candidates to the County Commissioners from which they will name a replacement Senator if and when Rowlie actually resigns his post. Until that time Rowlie is and will still be our Senate District 17 representative. I have also been informed that I can pick up an actual copy of the letter sent to his church members informing them of his decision and I will post that here sometime tomorrow. Stay tuned as we uncover the details.
What a sad turn of events for the people of Havre
