Why Vote Against Infrastructure?

Our state infrastructure should be a non-partisan issue

By Roger Sherman

Recently, the Republican-led Montana Legislature defeated a badly needed infrastructure bill by holding it hostage and demanding Governor Bullock capitulate on women’s health care. Some of these legislators responsible were four Flathead politicians: Keith Regier, Randy Brodehl, Derek Skees and Carl Glimm. My question to them is why? Our state infrastructure should be a non-partisan issue and we all benefit from well-maintained infrastructure. In my opinion these four people make bold statements about saving tax dollars and then in a hypocritical manner approve spending close to a million dollars on the special election at the end of May. This, as I see it, is ugly, mean spirited, partisan politics that does not serve our state well.
