GREAT FALLS — Great Falls voters will select two city commissioners next month from among six candidates.
One of them is Terry Thompson, 54 years old, who has lived in Great Falls since 1994. Her political experience includes two terms on Neighborhood Council number 3.
For the past 12 years she’s been the CEO of the Great Falls Association of Realtors.
Thompson would like to see better communication by the commission with the community. She believes her real estate background and time serving on a development task force will be beneficial.
Thompson said, “We have a reputation of being non-development friendly. And in the real estate industry, that’s my wheelhouse, that’s where I’m most comfortable, and the lack of growth we’ve got with our population. What comes first? Housing, the jobs, the businesses? So I think I can play a major role in trying to motivate us in a new direction and I’m not afraid to make bold choices for the community.”
Ballots will be mailed out on October 21st. They are due back by 8 p.m. on November 5th.
The candidates are Tracy Houck; Bruce Pollington; Kim Rodriguez; Jasmine Taylor; Terry Thompson; and Rick Tryon.
(JUNE 18, 2019) Monday was the last day to file for the upcoming municipal election in Great Falls.
There are two open seats on the City Commission, and the candidates include: Rick Tryon, Bruce Pollington, Kim Rodriguez, Jasmine Taylor and Terry Thompson.
Commissioner Tracy Houck is seeking another four-year term.
Mayor Bob Kelly and Steven Bolstad, a municipal judge, are running unopposed for the fall election.
