“The Montana Green Party held its first statewide convention in 10 years Saturday at the University of Montana’s Payne Family Native American Center, where party supporters appointed committee members, elected a candidate for the upcoming special election and heard from Green Party 2016 presidential nominee Jill Stein via Skype.
The party’s priority, Breck said, is getting a slot on the state’s ballot for upcoming elections, including the at-large congressional district special election of 2017, in which a Montana representative will be elected to replace former Congressman Ryan Zinke. —Missoulian
“The major questions on most people’s minds was, “who do I hate the most between these two candidates,” and that is not a democracy,” Stein said. “Democracy is not a questions of what we are afraid of and most dislikes, but it needs to be our values and moral compass. We lead the way with what we want and not what we hate.” —KPAX
