About Jen Gross
Sometimes in life you find yourself somewhere you never planned or expected to be, but you must open your heart and mind to the challenges presented because often they become opportunities. 82 days before the 2016 election, I found myself in a room of Yellowstone County Democrats asking me to replace Senator Robyn Driscoll on the ballot and mount a campaign to hold the Billings seat. I said YES. I worked harder than I have on any campaign, knocking nearly 4,000 doors and registering 150 new voters in my own neighborhood and community. Montana Republicans spent tens of thousands of dollars in an attempt to discredit me with a rather mean spirited negative mail blitz. I ignored their slanderous attacks and worked hard, knowing my integrity would be seen when I looked voters in the eye. I listened to the people in my district and promised to represent and their interests in Helena. I won by 96 votes. Then I went to Helena for my first term as a Montana State Senator. I worked hard to build relationships across the aisle, learn the process and be an effective legislator. I threw myself into the work and to my surprise, I found I was good at my job. While there were some disappointments, I am proud of the work we accomplished in the Senate and as legislative body. I sponsored two bills that were signed into law by Governor Bullock and helped defeat a number of bills that would have rolled back systems in place to protect hard working Montanans of all stripes. We have a long way to go in Montana to fix longstanding problems, and my pledge to my constituents and to all Montanans is to continue working hard for you. Please do not hesitate to contact me to share your story and your concerns. I look forward to hearing from you!

About Terry Dennis
I have worked in the private and public sector as a physician, epidemiologist, and medical administrator. I have worked in remote rural areas and large inner city medical centers. I have been taught by experience that a robust society requires constant effort by both the public and private sector. I hope to help our State to better serve the citizens, improve opportunity not only for businesses but individuals, and maintain our excellent quality of life.
What will my focus be in the legislature?
- Improving supports for young families to improve their economic success and success raising the future citizens of Montana.
- Improve education at all levels to promote well-being, productivity, and innovation in our state.
- Focus on Health: Insure we have strong public health system. Improve healthcare financing. Reduce the cost of healthcare so it is not diverting resources away from other societal needs.
