“Don’t give up hope.”
That’s the message U.S. Representative Greg Gianforte (R-Mont.) gives children he meets around the state. That’s what he told the 7th-12th grade students at Harlowton earlier this week.
And, on Thursday morning, Gianforte shared this same message with the Fergus County Sheriff’s Department, Fergus County Commissioner Ross Butcher, Fergus County Attorney Kent Sipe and Nexus Administrator Rick Barman in a conference room at the Nexus treatment complex.
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Montana Congressman Greg Gianforte recently introduced the Clean Water for Rural Communities Act, legislation to improve Montana’s rural water infrastructure.

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Montana Congressman Greg Gianforte urged House Speaker Paul Ryan to ensure continued and predictable funding for community health centers that serve Montanans who rely on them for access to health care.

Washington, D.C. – Congressman Greg Gianforte took to the House floor today to bring needed attention to the wildfires in Montana.
