Last week, E-City Beat received an email from a reader and concerned citizen with a picture of a partisan, machine-sponsored letter sent to Great Falls residents endorsing mayoral candidate Bob Kelly and City Commission candidate Susan Wolff.
The letter is signed and paid for by two out-of-town organizations, Planned Parenthood Advocates of Montana in Billings, and Forward Montana in Missoula.
The endorsement letter from these two groups raises several observations, but a basic question should be asked first:
Why are these far-left Democrat organizations from out of town paying to promote candidates in a Great Falls municipal election?
Perhaps the following observations will help to answer that question.
- Kelly and Wolff are running as a team, a political ticket. They are coordinating campaign efforts which is obvious to anyone who has observed their campaign signs in tandem in yards around Great Falls.
- Kelly and Wolff are both Democrats. Anyone who takes the time to ask around or look into current and past campaign contributions and ties to and involvement in the Cascade County Democratic Central Committee will clearly see the political party affiliation of both Kelly and Wolff.
- Kelly and Wolff are smart, politically connected operators who know how to leverage support from the statewide Democrat machine, which is ramping up once again in our local citywide election. Why?
- Kelly and Wolff didn’t and won’t answer specific questions about local issues and policies because they prefer to have their positions remain vague while at the same time allowing outside, far-left advocates to campaign for them while they themselves avoid the appearance of coordination with or connection to those groups. Slick.
So, to return to the question: Why are out-of-town Democrats, that are pro-abortion and well beyond the Great Falls mainstream, campaigning for Kelly and Wolff in the Great Falls election?
Answer: Because unlike the voters of Great Falls, Planned Parenthood Advocates of Montana and Forward Montana know what Kelly and Wolff will actually do if elected.
One final observation:
The Great Falls faith community and pro-life movement should be aware of and spread the word that Susan Wolff and Bob Kelly are endorsed and supported by the abortionists of Planned Parenthood.
Any diffythan Butrors being endorsed by the Republicans as well as at least 3 of the candidates PlannedParenthood had a clinic here in Gt Falls and does great work here just saying
First, they have Fred’s last name wrong. That should be the first red flag. I know spelling only counts in Double and Final Jeopardy!, but seriously. Second, is Matt Kelly, the Treasurer, any relation to Bob Kelly?
While abortion is an important issue, what I am concerned about is how these candidates will work to bring in viable businesses. We don’t need more casinos, fast food, storage buildings and coffee shops. What we need are businesses that support good paying, sustainable jobs. The taxpayers of the city are overextended trying to cover all the needs of the public, especially those who contribute little to nothing, but use up many of the resources. Anyone who is elected needs to take the concerns of ALL the people into consideration, not just a connected few.
