Beware of this deceptive flyer. You may have received a flyer in the mail asking you to “Join Montana Teachers in supporting (candidate X – I won’t give her more publicity by naming her) for House District 85.”
The despicable, sneaky “group” posing as Montana teachers who care about the safety of Montana children are in fact three disgruntled legislators from Kalispell and Hungry Horse who may or may not be retired teachers.
Why are these politicians from the Flathead spending almost $2,000 to fool Ravalli County voters? Certainly not because they care about the safety of our kids! In fact, these three legislators have never taken an active role in advancing school safety legislation. They are simply desperate to force their Flathead County political agenda on the citizens of Ravalli County.
One of these three Flathead legislators is involved with another fake Flathead political group that calls themselves “Doctors for a Healthy Montana” made up of one doctor and three disgruntled Flathead legislators. These Flathead politicians seem to think Ravalli County voters are stupid.
Tell these politicians from the Flathead that Ravalli County voters think for themselves. Tell them we take school safety too seriously to be fooled by their political tricks! If you see the flyer from this shameful group calling themselves “Montana Teachers for Student Safety,” take a picture of it before you toss it in the burn pile so you can warn your friends about these imposters.
