Candidate Profile: Republican Ed Buttrey

Ed Buttrey is the GOP candidate and incumbent running for the Montana State Legislature in Great Falls/Cascade County HD21. His opponent is Democrat Lela Yael Graham:

I am a 4th generation Montanan and business owner born and raised in Great Falls. I previously served in the Montana Senate working in leadership roles in each session, chairing multiple committees and serving as Majority Whip. I currently serve in leadership roles as Representative for HD21, elected in 2018 and re-elected in 2020. 

I am married to Jessica and together we are raising three beautiful young girls, Kenzy, Macy and TayLee. Hobbies include hunting, fishing, camping, football, exploring and any opportunity working as a coach or mentor for our children. 

I am passionate about public service and believe that we all have a responsibility to work hard for our community, state and nation. Serving in the Legislature and representing the people of HD21 has been an honor and blessing. My campaign slogan is “passion, not politics”, which means that I work hard to represent the values and needs of those who sent me to work in Helena, above all else. 

Hard work, knowledge of the law, leadership experience, and listening to those I represent are what make me the best candidate for election in House District 21. 

My priorities in the upcoming Legislative session are clear. Long term tax reform and economic development are at the top of the list. I don’t believe in political gimmicks and will work to ensure that hard working Montanans keep more of their hard-earned money year after year and that good jobs and opportunities are available. I will continue working to ensure that government supports its citizens and is not in the way of growth or opportunity for any of us. Government must be responsible, and responsive. 

With your support, I will continue working hard to represent the values and needs of those living in House District 21. On November 8th, please cast your vote for Ed Buttrey to continue as your Representative for HD21.
