Wilmot Collins – Candidate for U.S. Senate
Wilmot currently serves as the mayor of Montana’s capital city, Helena. He has served Montana and the nation in the National Guard, US Army Reserves and the US Navy Reserves for over 20 years. During his career, he has worked as a teacher that helped troubled or at risk youth, the VA at Fort Harrison, the Department of Homeland Security and as a Child Protection Specialist at the State of Montana.
As the Mayor of Helena some of his accomplishments are the first public safety bond in nearly 20 years, more first responders on the streets, a remodeling of a new Law and Justice Center, expansion of affordable housing opportunities for low-income individuals in the Self Help Program, increased the efficiency in the way roads were plowed during the winter months to save money and increase public safety and moved the parking meters from the old coin-operated approach to a debit card based technology.
Wilmot is a refugee of the Liberian Civil war. He and his wife Maddie fled in the midst of one of Africa’s most brutal civil wars.
