Affordable Housing

Access to affordable housing is one of a few crisis situations our state is facing at this time, along with the lack of access to childcare, and the public health crisis we are facing due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Casey believes that the only way to solve this issue though community development.  At this time there are just not enough houses being built   

Childcare

In Montana, Childcare in general is scarce, and for those between infancy and 6 years old,

it's more expensive than a 4 year college degree.

 

As someone who grew up as the built-in childcare to a family of 7 and has worked in both the childcare & small business management industries, I understand just how important good childcare facilities are to growing an economy so it can thrive.

 

Commitment to quality child care is not only a good way to grow a local economy—it helps make Montana more pro-family. Quality child care is especially important for working mothers.

Access to quality, affordable childcare is in a state of crisis.  As the father of three young children, Casey has seen firsthand what it is like to take days off of work,  

Education

Casey believes that public education not only acts as the primary catalyst for a strong economy, upward mobility, and the quality of life in Montana, but also fosters the lasting bonds of understanding, acceptance, and community that make Montana such a desirable place to live. He is committed to a continuum of high-quality public education opportunities that develop the potential of every Montanan and of Montana itself. 

 
Energy

Casey believes that we must reduce our reliance on fossil fuels over time through a combination of energy conservation, energy efficiency, and investment/development of clean and renewable energy sources. He believes that we can achieve this goal, sustain and provide good Montana jobs in the energy sector.  

 
Equality

Casey is committed to ensuring that every person has the autonomy and the support they deserves to live the life they choose with dignity, equality, and opportunity. He is committed to securing equal opportunities in education, employment, and leadership for every person and to ensuring safe, healthy, and nurturing environments for everyone. To achieve these goals, we must have diverse representation. Not only in determining local, state, and national policies, but also in allocating resources to meet the needs of families and communities.

 
Healthcare

Casey is dedicated to ensuring quality of life and equality of opportunity for all individuals and families, regardless of their socio-economic status. Fundamental to such quality and equality is access to the basic necessities of life, including, at a minimum, health care, education, shelter, adequate nutrition, human dignity, and lives free of violence. Furthermore, Casey believes that with the right to Healthcare comes the right to transparency in the medical billing process. Families have the right to know what they are paying for.

 
Public Health

Casey believes strongly in in the mission of public health to promote and protect the health of people and the communities where they live, learn, work and play. He also believes public health decisions should be made by public health experts not politicians. 

 
Labor

Casey believes that stable jobs with livable wages are another cornerstone of a stable economy and a healthy society. Because the vast majority of Montanans make their living as wage-earners, we seek fair compensation for their labor so that they can provide for their families and sustain their communities. Montana workers deserve safety, security, and dignity as conditions of their employment, as well as conditions of their 

retirement after a lifetime of hard work.

 
Hunting, Fishing and Recreation

Casey recognizes that the opportunity for Montanans to enjoy our spectacular landscapes and abundant wildlife is an integral part of our heritage, identity, and lifestyle. He believes in public ownership of the fish, wildlife, streams and rivers of our state and rely on our government to hold these resources in trust for the beneficial use of our citizens and future generations.
