Kim Abbott’s Experience, Support Make Her the Best Choice

Kim Abbott HelenaKim Abbott is the best choice to represent house district 83 in Helena.

It’s good to see one of Helena’s most important legislative race–the one in which Helena favorite Kim Abbott is running—get some attention. However, the coverage has been a bit reductive, as these things often are.  To be sure, the race is one between two very different candidates, but its worth knowing more about what these distinctions are.

The difference is certainly one of experience. Abbot has many years experience working with the legislation, with results. Her opponent is a young man who has always wanted to run for U.S. senate. And while that is certainly an admirably goal, we need representatives focuses on serving the people of the district more than we need those who sees the legislature as stepping stone to future political aspirations.

But it isn’t just your friendly local progressive blogger who finds the proven effectiveness of Kim Abbott to make her the best choice.  Just take a look the list of some of the other people who have endorsed or contributed to her campaign:
