Whitney Williams is a sixth-generation Montanan, businesswoman, and daughter of former Congressman Pat Williams, and former State Senate Majority Leader, Carol Williams. As a CEO of williamsworks, Whitney worked alongside Fortune 500 companies, charities, and citizens to solve complex problems — just like those Montanans face every day. She’s helped folks get back on their feet after disaster strikes, opened new markets for farmers struggling to make ends meet, and served on the ground in communities abandoned by government all together. Whitney is running for governor because she believes Montana needs someone with business experience — a fighter — who will bring big, bold ideas to Helena and tough enough to take on the new challenges we face.
