Helena, MT – Tonight, Candidate for Secretary of State Bryce Bennett will join conservation advocates to lay out his guiding principles for defending access to Montana’s public lands when serving on the land board as Secretary of State. His opponent, on the other hand, appears to be studying up on what exactly the land board does.
When asked about her priorities for the land board, Christi Jacobsen admitted, “I haven’t dived deep in that,” before stumbling through a vague answer about, “you know, unnecessary bureaucracy.” The land board consists of Montana’s statewide elected officials, and a land board secretary — if Jacobsen wants to eliminate “bureaucracy,” she should first learn exactly what the land board does.
“Montanans need elected officials who will defend access to our public lands and responsibly manage our state’s natural resources — not someone who doesn’t understand their basic responsibilities,” said MDP Communications Director Nathan Stein. “Hopefully, Jacobsen has since had a chance to look into the specifics of the job she’s applying for.”
