Ask Kathleen Williams a question and she will answer it. Her straightforward, thoughtful responses are refreshingly free of trite soundbites we heard from her opponent... Kathleen Williams will bring an even temper, analytical mind, and thick skin to the U.S. House. She would be a strong voice for civility, bipartisanship and moderation. Combine that with her extensive knowledge of how to make government agencies work for average citizens, and Williams is an excellent choice.

Williams has a long record of working in the Montana Legislature, both as a staff member and as three-term representative from Bozeman. During that time, she demonstrated a willingness to work with legislators from both parties to find common ground on important issues... The majority of Montanans don't place themselves on the fringes of the political spectrum. Our lone representative to Congress should reflect that.

Experienced. Knowledgeable. Thoughtful. Measured. Most remarkably, Williams exudes that unique combination of grit and camaraderie that embodies the very best traits of Montanans, and which is an essential trait of any truly great statesman... She shows up — in communities large and small across Montana — in person, listens carefully and speaks candidly. Williams would bring a refreshing approach to problem-solving and policy-making to Congress.

"The biggest thing we lost in the last election wasn’t the White House – it was our dignity. The only way to regain it is by electing people who embody it. Kathleen Williams is walking talking dignity. She has proven it during her legislative service and her thoughtful and inclusive approach to advocacy. When I envision her being the face of Montana in the US Congress I know I’ll be out knocking on doors one more time." --- Dorothy Bradley
