BOZEMAN, MT – Social Security Works, a group committed to protecting Social Security and improving the economic security of disadvantaged and at-risk populations, endorsed Kathleen Williams for Montana’s lone U.S. House seat tonight. Jon “Bowzer” Bauman, President of Social Security Works PAC, joined Kathleen to talk about the importance of Social Security and her commitment to protect the program and its beneficiaries in Congress.
“There’s a clear choice in this race,” Kathleen said. “Someone who will stand up for Social Security or someone who supports raising the retirement age and whose plans would endanger the program.”
“All over the country we try to find leaders with us on these issues and of course we have found one such leader right there in the state of Montana in Kathleen Williams,” Bowzer said via Zoom when discussing protecting and expanding Social Security. “For these reasons and many others, Kathleen Williams is our choice.”
One in five Montana residents received Social Security benefits in 2017. Kathleen is committed to protecting and strengthening Social Security to ensure those who have spent their lives working can maintain their independence as they age.
In Congress, Kathleen will oppose efforts to defund or privatize Social Security and fight efforts to raise the retirement age, and will fight to make sure everyone can craft and achieve their American dream in Montana.
Social Security Works is dedicated to protecting and improving the economic security of disadvantaged and at-risk populations. They have fought to preserve Social Security in coordination with the Strengthen Social Security coalition made up of over 300 national and state organizations representing over 50 million Americans.
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.
