Caitlin Copple For Missoula City Council

Pay attention, Missoula.

Caitlin Copple is the only equality choice for Ward 4 of the Missoula City Council. Her opponent in this race was a vocal opponent of the equality ordinance passed by the Missoula City Council last year.

From her website:

I’m running for council because I believe in safeguarding the quality of life we enjoy in Missoula: ensuring a safe and welcoming community for all people, protecting and expanding our open space and recreational opportunities, and supporting an economic climate that encourages investment in our people while respecting our community’s values and environment. I hope to bring positive energy and a friendly attitude to the council and work to build bridges between council members and among my constituents – a skill I’ve developed as a nonprofit leader and community organizer with groups like Pride Foundation, YWCA Missoula, NCBI Missoula, Montana Women Vote, Forward Montana, and the Western Montana Community Center.

Ms Copple has mad skills in community building, is a hard worker, is extremely well organized, and has the kind of personality that works toward understanding- not strong-arming. I’ve worked with her, I admire her, and I believe she has what it takes to be an elected community leader.

Plus, she was mentioned in this article by the Huffington Post.

It’s a good investment.

And when you get your ballots, vote for Copple!

    Really disagree here, esp. using the Rye/Strohmaier Equality Ordinance as a litmus test for good city council representation. D. Gregory, I fear you are encouraging people to vote incorrectly. Lyn Hellegaard was one of only three votes against the absurd purchase of the baseball stadium~~a purchase that took 3.2 million dollars from the greater public good and handed it to seven white collar investors who wanted their endangered money back…now. I am 99% certain, if asked, Copple would also have voted to turn this money over. Hellegaard was THE ONLY city council representative to question Parks and Recreations stated mission to eradicate all Norway maple trees. Hellegaard returns phone calls. (Jason Wiener sure doesn’t.) Caitlin Copple may be a good candidate but judging Lyn Hellegaard on the symbolic (and, quite frankly and sadly, political move by Strohmaier esp. to position himself for the gay and liberal vote as he seeks a congressional seat) makes this seem like a popularity contest. The ordinance is symbolic, not enforceable and I think it is a great great thing. But not something by which to put another of the Strohmaier, Wiener, Rye ilk in a position to vote exactly the way they think their college philosophy professor would want them to. We have liberal people in our own camp who simply will not confront full information. And no one holds them accountable. Hellegaard also is the ONLY one on that board who openly challenges John Engen to think outside the last article he read in Mayoral Monthly.
