Small Businessman and Former State Manager Files for Lewis & Clark County Commission
If you’ve been following what’s going on in Ravalli and Lincoln Counties lately I don’t have to tell you how important it is to vote for responsible, intelligent and competent county leaders instead of angry ideologues.
So it’s good news that longtime resident, community activist and former State Fund manager Dennis Small is running for Lewis & Clark County Commission. Small, a democrat, is running to improve the level of communications between county agencies and residents. He says he’ll also make responsible growth planning and wise use water policy priorities.
Small says more attention is needed to make sure our county’s water is going to be cleaned and treated before it gets to our schools and homes. “Wise use of water is becoming more and more important as we move forward. The county needs to be prepared ahead of time for the inevitable increased use of our water resources.”
Dennis Small has a BA in English and a Masters of Public Administration, both from the University of Montana. Dennis and his wife, Terri Hamilton, have lived in Helena for more than 20 years. Their parents, children and grandchildren also live here. After 18 years at the Montana State Fund, Dennis left to help his wife manage their small business, Transformational Arts Center and Blue Feather Chiropractic.
“I’ve lived in Lewis & Clark County for 23 years and love the people and communities that make up this amazing section of Montana, however, I feel there is room to improve the customer service between agencies and the people they need to be helping,” said Small. “As Commissioner, I will be available to hear your concerns and make sure your voice is heard.”
