On Friday May, 13th, Greg Gianforte and his wife Susan visited Colstrip to meet with the people here and see the city for themselves. They visited local businesses including Taylor's Ace Hardware, and CEI, as well as touring other places like the Schoolhouse History and Art Center. Greg concluded his visit by meeting with the public at the CPRD pavilion for a short Q&A session. This was Greg's 3rd visit to Colstrip, and his 11th visit to eastern Montana within the last year.
Greg was the first to accept the invitation to come to Colstrip as part of Colstrip United's "Get The Candidates To Colstrip" project. Each gubernatorial candidate was invited to visit us in May. Thus far, the only other candidate to accept our invitaion was Steve Bullock. We are still waiting to hear details about his visit from his office, however we were told that he is planning on visiting Colstrip in May.
