Letter To The Editor
Cooney for Governor
July 1, 2020 | View PDF
Voters have an experienced choice for Governor with Mike Cooney who was elected to the Montana State House and Senate, and the offices of Sec. of State and Lieutenant Governor. Mike Cooney has also served as an administrator in the MT Dept. of Labor and Industry, Director of the MT Historical Society, Executive Director of MT Healthy Mothers, Healthy Babies and in his family business, Cooney Food Brokerage. When choosing Cooney for his Lt. Gov., Steve Bullock described Cooney as an accomplished leader who would bring values to state government. Cooney follows in the footsteps of his grandfather who was elected LT. Gov. and Governor in the 1930’s.
When Cooney visited Sidney in 2019 he engaged high school students who attended the Meet and Greet, and afterwards encountering a Republican legislator, it was obvious that Mike Cooney relished working across the aisle to accomplish the needs of Montana’s citizens. Experience and being “kinder than necessary” mark this candidates’ character.
