A life-long Montanan, teacher, and supporter of Democrat and Left politics since I was child forlornly supporting Jimmy Carter’s re-election campaign back when I was in elementary school. I am concerned that the Democratic Party has lost its soul in its acquiescence to big business, the military, and social conservatives, but am encouraged by the development of authentic, progressive voices in our party. I think that we need to be proud of the rich Democratic tradition of helping those who need help, using the military as a last resort, and remembering that the worker is as, if not more, important than the owner of the business.
The Polish Wolf
I currently work as a tutor for the Helena School District. I grew up in Helena but only recently returned from Seattle, so I tend to have trouble sticking only to Montana stories. After some time in Poland and some studying international politics, I’ve become a stronger proponent of the US in general, while seeing all the more clearly the folly of some of our policies. I lean towards international stories and have a tendency to ramble, but I suppose y’all will notice that reading my posts. I’m honored to be writing alongside Pogie and mostly hope not to detract from his excellent reporting!

Raised in Helena, I’m particularly passionate about the environment, transparency, and explaining wonky budget policy. The views expressed are mine alone. If you want to contact me, email Tyler_Evilsizer@hks12.harvard.edu.
