Meet a Democratic Candidate for Governor – Steve Bullock:
As a Montana native, my wife Lisa and I are raising our three kids in the same community in which we were raised and we’re teaching them the same values we were taught: to work hard, play by the rules and get the kind of education and job that will allow them to raise their families here, too.
Since I was elected as Montana’s Attorney General, I’ve worked hard every day to make our state better for the next generation of Montanans. We’ve put more cops on the street – and on the computers – preventing, investigating, arresting and prosecuting child sex predators. I’ve worked with law enforcement, doctors, pharmacists and educators to confront the invisible epidemic of prescription drug abuse – a contributing factor in the deaths of over 300 Montanans every year. I’ve cracked down on scam artists who prey on small businesses and consumers and worked to make sure family farmers and ranchers can get a fair price for their work. And we’ve implemented monumental changes in the way we deal with repeat DUI offenders who cause carnage on our highways, burden our corrections system and cost taxpayers millions.
