The Bozeman Daily Chronicle’s editorial board Thursday put their support behind state Superintendent Denise Juneau in her bid to become Montana’s next Congresswoman.
“Juneau has an outstanding record as state superintendent of public instruction, where she has had significant success in increasing statewide graduation rates. She has an exemplary resume that includes a law degree from the University of Montana and a graduate degree in education from Harvard. And despite that outstanding academic pedigree — which could have vaulted her to success in any number of areas on the national level — she returned to Montana to work to improve lives in her home state.
Her experience as an educator and as superintendent has served Montana well and, we believe, would complement the strengths of the state’s two sitting senators.
Montana has been lucky to have such a thoughtful, accomplished person as part of our state government. Sending her to Washington is the right move.”
The Chronicle is troubled by Congressman Ryan Zinke’s unending support for Donald Trump, his eagerness to find a new job, and his interference with the Forest Service in the Bozeman area.
The Chronicle writes, “On balance, the choice is clear: Replace Zinke. And send Juneau to D.C. to fill this important seat.”
