Dear Voter,

My name is Alan Hale, The next representative of house district 77, with your help of course. My wife Gail of 39 years and I, have lived, worked and raised five children and are lucky enough to see ten of our grandchildren being raised here in montana. Thank god.

POSITION:  No positions in stocks mentioned.
