Gianforte ‘pleased’ as Legislature nears transmittal point

Gov. Greg Gianforte said yesterday he’s happy with the executive team he’s assembled and encouraged with the progress of key measures as the Legislature nears transmittal.


“Job one was putting the team together,” he told The Montana Standard in a short interview. “That’s what I’ve done my whole career, organize teams.”


“We’ve prioritized competency and experience. We’ve picked people who embrace customer service, to make the agencies more responsive to the public,” the governor said.
