Slotnick will dig in as commissioner
Neva Hassanein, Missoulian Letter to the Editor
I enthusiastically support Josh Slotnick, who is running as a Democrat for the Board of Missoula County Commissioners. Slotnick has been my friend, farmer and colleague for nearly 20 years. Without a doubt, he is one of the most hard-working and civic-minded people I know.
Slotnick has deep roots in Missoula and rural areas. After growing up in North Dakota, he moved here at 18 to attend the University of Montana. He later served in the Peace Corps, and earned graduate degrees in agricultural extension and in ecological horticulture.
Then, 25 years ago, he returned to Missoula, started an organic farm with his wife, raised three children and became an educator. Slotnick is probably best known in the community as the head, heart and hands behind the much-loved PEAS farm.
Josh Slotnick cares deeply about this place and the people who live here. Now, he wants to contribute in a new way, as an elected official.
As commissioner, he will bring a strong record of collaboration and a can-do spirit that we clearly need in politics today. Never afraid of hard work, Slotnick will dig in and get things done. Please join me in supporting Slotnick for County Commissioner.
