BOZEMAN, MT — Nearly one in ten Montanans is a veteran. Kathleen Williams, candidate for Montana’s lone U.S. House seat, is the daughter and wife of veterans and is focused on making sure our country’s veterans get the services and support they deserve.
“Our veterans deserve the best services and treatment that we can provide them, given that they and their families have sacrificed so much for us,” said Kathleen Williams “I’m from a military family, my father was a World War II veteran and my husband was a Vietnam-era veteran and I know the importance of the sacrifice and commitment to this country veterans and their families have made.”
In Congress Kathleen will continue her commitment to improving the lives and well-being of veterans. She will fight to provide the services veterans need and the opportunities they deserve, including:
- Ensure that veterans’ (and their families’) skills gained overseas or during service can be more easily integrated into civilian employment.
- Ensure Veterans have practical access to health care and services, including mental health, in their communities while preserving and improving the VA.
- Honor the sacrifices of our veterans, service members, and their families by advancing diplomacy, rebuilding relationships with our allies, and reasserting Congress’ role in acts of war.
During her time in the Montana Legislature, Kathleen has consistently voted to support our veterans. Kathleen voted for funding Veteran homes in Columbia Falls and Southwest Montana, a $1,000 scholarship program for Purple Heart recipients and a home loan program for veterans and Gold Star families.Kathleen Williams has been called the “candidate Montana has been waiting for.” A three-term legislator with a nearly four-decade career solving tough issues and getting results, she is true to Montana—hard-working, independent, and honest. In Congress, she’ll stand up to special interests and partisan gridlock, and work just as hard for Montanans as they do every day.
