Update: Bob Kelly Responds

For his role in “misrepresenting” the community, Bob Kelly apologized on his mayoral Facebook page:

Regarding recent concerns about potential refugee resettlement in Great Falls:For those concerned about refugee…

What do you think of Kelly’s statement?


  1. As mayor ….you represent….period. To represent you must disclose and communicate with all and have a consent of communication and intent. Arrogant action on his part!

  2. We have enough underprivileged, and needy people and children in our community without going outside our country to bring more here… You liberals amaze me how you can feel so good about helping other people, non-citizens while walking by oblivious to the needs of Americans… Your rose colored glasses are pathetic.

  3. If you like Missoula so much, move there and support their decisions to bring in refugees and give them tax dollars while they have hundreds of homeless living on the river. Try cleaning up GF instead of adding more problems.

  4. Mayor Kelly apologized, said he was sorry, and assured the xenophobes and liberals that they shouldn’t be expecting refugees to ruin/improve our lives. I forgive him. Speaking of tax dollars, how that section of Trumps big, impenetrable, beautiful wall blowing over in the wind?

    • What the hell does Trumps wall have to do with Great Falls politics? This is one of the biggest issues I have with liberals. We are talking about a local city issue and you decide to bring Trump into this? I suppose next you’re going to tell me that Bob Kelly’s bad decision is Trumps fault.

  5. I don’t know any mayor of recent history that hasn’t misstepped a tad, perhaps spoke a tad to soon or made a mistake one way or another. Mayor Kelly has given an explanation for his deed. These mistakes will not define them as “good” or “poor” mayors. They define them as human.
