Hey Missoulian, How About Giving Some Credit to Senator Tester?

In its effort to congratulate a ‘vocal public’ for blocking the Forest Service’s proposed road easements for private development on roads designed for logging and recreation, the Missoulian seems to have forgotten Senator Tester’s strong effort to block the deal.

Public opinion certainly mattered, but we can’t overlook the efforts of the Senator, who kept pushing the Forest Service on this issue.

If you appreciate an independent voice holding Montana politicians accountable and informing voters, and you can throw a few dollars a month our way, we would certainly appreciate it.
