GREAT FALLS — Great Falls voters will select two city commissioners next month from among six candidates in the running.
One of them is Tracy Houck. Houck, 47 years old, has lived in Great Falls for 25 years.
She is currently working as a consultant and has extensive experience working with non-profits on the both local and state level. Most recently she served as executive director of the Paris Gibson Square Museum of Art.
Houck said she would like to see slow and steady growth that provides a bigger tax base which in turn will allow for more resources, including public safety. She says the city has streamlined its process to allow for greater investment in community development, planning, and public works.
Houck likes different backgrounds on the current commission and says she’s not afraid to make tough decisions. She said, I’m open, I’m genuine, I’m smart, I read. I don’t make decisions based on popular opinion. I make decisions based on the right thing that needs to be done. I make decisions based on the resources we have and the resources we can obtain.”
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.
