Montana Meth Project: A Simple Couple of Questions A Legislator Might Ask Before Giving Away Any More Money

  • How did the Montana Meth Project manage to spend $551,513 on  “Survey Fees” in 2007?
  • Why did an organization that paid its executive director $130,000 in 2007  also pay $60, 516/year for “Professional Fund Raising”? What is Peg Shea’s current salary?
  • Why did an employee who was listed as performing  one hour of work each week receive compensation of $49, 191 and benefits of $9,570 in 2007? Does he still have this amazing job, and where can I apply?
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.
