Governor Attends Labor Day Picnic

Posted: Updated:
GREAT FALLS - Monday at the Montana Expo Park was the Labor Day Picnic where local residents came to celebrate. Also in attendance were those who support local and national political causes, local legislative candidates, and Governor Steve Bullock who was pleased to see candidates from both parties come together and celebrate. He took the time to also express what he would like to see continue in the upcoming Legislative Session.

Governor Bullock said positive things about candidates celebrating together.  He said "when you think about it, the first six months this year alone we added 12,000 jobs to our economy. Things are ticking right along, and I want to make sure that right through this next Legislative Session we have folks that are more focused on moving Montana forward than the partisan squabble. It's great to see everyone out though."

Governor Bullock also commended Montana for being the most fiscally prudent state in the country. He also said for this upcoming session that he would like the state to have a public funded Pre-Kindergarten school program.
