An Open Letter to Congressman Dennis Rehberg, Montana GOP Chairman Will Deschamps and Montana GOP Executive Director Bowen Greenwood:
It recently came to my attention that the Lewis and Clark County Republican Women’s club is holding a "Remembrance Dinner" fundraiser on September 11. The Republican Women’s Club gives most of the money it raises to Republican candidates and other political causes.
As a firefighter, I am very concerned about any attempt to politicize the events of one of the most tragic days in American History. And I ask you to reject any plans to use money raised in "remembrance" of 9/11 for partisan politcal causes. September 11 is a day to remember what makes us stronger as a nation, not to deepen partisan divides.
