Bigfork Obama Office

By Beacon Staff

The Obama Campaign secured an office in Bigfork, and opens its doors to the public on Wednesday September 3rd.

“We encourage everybody from all political backgrounds to come and learn more about Senator Obama and Senator Biden,” says state Communications Director Caleb Weaver. Weaver says Bigfork will be the 17th Obama office in Montana. A Kalispell office opened in August, and a Whitefish office is slated to open soon.

Weaver says the opening of this Bigfork office is part of a statewide effort to engage in face to face contact. Montana is one of 18 battleground states, and the Obama campaign is working to reach out to as many people as possible.

“By getting people engaged in the political process, that’s how real change is going to happen,” Weaver says.

The new office is in the Swan View Building in Jewel Basin Court, off Highway 83. The grand opening runs from 6 PM until 8PM. Normal office hours will run Monday through Saturday from 9 AM to 9 PM, and Sunday from Noon to 7PM.
