Helena, MT – This week, the Montana Democratic Party is taking a closer look at Maryland Matt’s long history of opposing services for Montana’s veterans. Today, we’re looking at Rosendale’s vote against creating a program that has helped hundreds of veterans and gold star families buy homes.
The loan program was endorsed by the VFW, American Legion, and National Guard, but Maryland Matt still couldn’t bring himself to do right by Montana’s veterans. Thankfully, despite Rosendale’s objections, the bill passed, was signed into law by Governor Bullock, and has since provided hundreds of loans to Montana veterans.
Kathleen Williams, serving in the Montana House at the time, voted for the bill.
“At every opportunity to stand with Montana veterans, Matt Rosendale has refused to step up,” said MDP Communications Director Nathan Stein. “Kathleen Williams has been a true champion for Montana’s veterans, and as Montana’s next congresswoman, she will continue to be a fierce advocate for all those who served.”
