Upholding His Commitment to Transparency, Tester Hosts 6th In-Person Town Hall of the Year in Livingston

Senator answers tough questions, receives feedback from a group of approximately 150 Montanans in public forum


(Livingston, Mont.) - U.S. Senator Jon Tester spent an hour today soliciting feedback and answering questions from approximately 150 Park County residents in his 6th public, in-person town hall since the start of the year.

"In order to do this job, you've got to listen to the folks you represent, whether they agree with you or not," Tester said. "These in-person town halls put me in the hot seat-folks can ask anything they want and I have to respond. By coming to a forum like this, you're helping to hold me accountable so I can take your ideas back to Washington and continue fighting for Montana."

Tester kicked off the forum by highlighting some of his recent legislative actions including his ongoing efforts to protect public lands from outside interests. He also spoke about his work to make housing more affordable in towns like Livingston and Gardiner and pointed out his recent bill, the Seeding Rural Resilience Act, which works to combat the climbing rates of farmer suicide in the United States.

Tester heard from constituents on issues ranging from public lands, to climate change, suicide prevention, securing benefits for our veterans, civic engagement, forest management, and recent U.S. action in Syria.

This is Tester's 6th in-person, public town hall this year-following those in Bozeman, Missoula, Helena, Great Falls, and Billings—and his twelfth since President Trump took office. He has held dozens of Facebook Live town halls and public forums since 2016, ranging on topics from health care reform to Farm Bill reauthorization, VA community care, the ongoing trade war, and local infrastructure priorities across Montana.
