We are writing to show our support for Joel Krautter in his re-election campaign to the Montana House of Representatives.

We served with Rep. Krautter this past term, voted on legislation Krautter presented and quickly noticed he was one of eastern Montana’s hardest working legislators. A legislator’s first-term is often a steep learning curve, but Joel jumped right in and with his legal background didn’t waste time getting to work. Joel stood solidly with eastern Montanans in support of oil, gas and coal jobs and he was an outstanding leader for agriculture.

We are all Republicans and we are all disappointed to see the false and meritless attacks on Rep. Krautter. Unfortunately we’ve all learned during our time in public service that no one can keep everyone happy because hard decisions have to be made.

Joel consistently put the people of his district ahead of playing politics in Helena and he delivered results. This is the approach we need more of in Montana politics today to find lasting solutions.


Sen. Duane Ankney, (R-Colstrip); Rep. Geraldine Custer (R-Forsyth); and Rep. Ken Holmlund (R-Miles City)
