What I find most interesting is the fact that out of our 5 local representatives only the Republicans show up to answer questions and hear what the people back home have to say. Senator Hutton, Representative Warburton and Representative Hansen show up each and every week but the Democrats Senator Jonathan Windy Boy and Representative Tony Belcourt have never even attended once to my knowledge. Also according to the Montana Legislative Guide which I picked up at the Hill County Electric Cooperative Republicans Hutton, Warburton and Hansen have published their cell phone numbers so the people back home can leave them messages and call with concerns. Democrats Windy Boy and Belcourt both list their contact numbers as the Legislative Information operator (406) 444-4800 where you have to leave a message and hope that they actually will get it at some point.
My question to Hutton Warburton and Hansen is; Why do you even bother to waste your time coming to the Wednesday video conference when you know the deck is being purposely stacked against you?
To Windy Boy and Belcourt; Where in the hell have you been?
All this time I have been thinking this video conference was some sort of Republican sponsored event and today I find out that the school provides this service to all of our representatives and the Democrats have just failed to participate. It is time to give them a call at their special Montana State answering service number and ask them to participate. (406) 444-4800
