Politics is a dirty business, or so I have been told. Occasionally, someone rises above the muck and plants themselves on a foundation of freedom and constitutional principles. In Montana, we are fortunate to have a few legislators who have consistently landed on the side of truth and liberty. One such legislator is State Senator Jennifer Fielder. To better get a feel for what Jennifer stands for, I am re-printing a brief bio from her website.
Jennifer's professional background includes extensive experience in construction, landscape, recreation, natural resources, and community enhancement projects. Her education includes Vocational Certifications in Horticulture and Landscape, an A.A.S. Degree in Coaching, and a B.S. Degree in Parks & Recreation with a Business Emphasis.
After serving seven years in public works and parks administration, Jennifer started Silverline Projects, Inc., a planning, design, and construction business which she successfully owned & operated for 20 years.
Her husband, Paul, is a retired wildlife biologist and active outdoorsman. Paul & Jennifer have donated thousands of hours to community improvement & wildlife conservation projects. They enjoy an outdoor lifestyle of gardening, fire wooding, hunting, fishing, and trapping to augment their livelihood. They also enjoy improving timber quality and wildlife habitat on their forest land near Thompson Falls.
Paul & Jennifer have two grown children each with families of their own, a large extended family, and 5 beautiful grandchildren. They are Christians.
Jennifer’s decision to serve in the State Legislature in 2012 was a result of deep concern over the direction the country was headed in combined with a deep reverence for the principles of life, liberty, and property upon which this great nation was founded. Jennifer believes it’s not too late to get it back on the right track, but it will only happen if enough good people become informed and active in government processes.
Recently, Jennifer took the microphone after a local Defend Rural America meeting. She is introduced by Kirk MacKenzie, founder of Defend Rural America. Listen to her presentation and see if you agree.
