U.S. House of Representatives candidate Kathleen Williams fundraises in Big Sky

Kathleen Williams, who is one of two candidates in the Democratic primary race for Montana’s U.S. House seat, recently ventured to Big Sky for an apres-ski fundraiser. Standing before windows showcasing the surrounding mountains of Big Sky at the home of Barbara Rowley and Taylor Middleton, she listened intently as support- ers voiced their concerns for the nation and for the state. Healthcare and prescription costs were just a few issues highlighted by attendees.

The event was sponsored by Jackie Robin, Carolyn and Scott Heppel, Marilyn and Wayne Hill, and Rowley and Middleton. After the event, Williams ventured to a production of George Orwell’s, “1984” at Warren Mill- er Performing Arts Center.

Williams, who served three terms in the state legislature, is running a second time for the now open seat as Greg Gianforte (R-MT At-large District) re-ups his bid for governor, which he lost in 2016 to incumbent Demo- crat Steve Bullock, who termed- out. Bullock recently announced his bid for U.S. Senate.

Williams is going against Rep. Tom Winter (D-Missoula) in the Democratic primary race.

Robin said she and Rowley attended an event for Williams in Bozeman a few months ago, which served as impetus for the apres-ski fundraiser.

“We were impressed by her desire to find out what Montan- ans want, her ability to listen and her interest in going to Washington to find solutions to the issues that concern Montan- ans and our country,” she said, noting that Williams strikes her as kind, reasonable, intelligent, independent and someone who will will go to work for all if elected.
