Gazette opinion: Reasons for Joy in Billings Ward 3

in making a recommendation for a council member to take office in January, Joy is the clear choice.

Joy also impresses us with her grasp of the diversity of Billings and her passion for championing individuals who are often marginalized.

Joy has done more research and brings more experience in civic engagement. We recommend that Ward 3 voters cast their ballots for Denise Joy.

The FDR Democrats that value economic equality, social justice and value community service are important to my campaign.  They have supported with feet on sidewalks and money in the bank.  The ideals of hard work, collective bargaining, public service and the value of a human life, and laws that protect not victimize, is my definition of a Democrat.
