Guest view: Montana, we can make history together

They said it couldn’t be done. A Liberian refugee who escaped a civil war could never be elected to office. And certainly couldn’t do it in Montana.


They do not know Montana. They do not know America. Where if you dream, and if you work hard, anything is possible. I may not look or sound like the regular politician, but I’m a hard worker and I get things done. I’ve lived my life in service of the Montana that gave me a chance and gave my family refuge.


I’ve served Montana as an Army and Navy reservist. I’ve served Montana working for the VA hospital at Fort Harrison. I’ve served Montana’s children as a teacher and working with underprivileged and at-risk youth.
