Letters: ‘Honor and kindness,’ Tom Browder for House District 92

As a resident of East Missoula, I am writing to put my support behind Tom Browder for House District 92. 

I haven’t known Tom for a very long time but what I have seen is an honest, knowledgeable, generous, dedicated, and helpful person. I was first introduced to Tom on a blisteringly hot summer day when he was manning a community food drive in the parking lot of Ole’s Conoco Station. The heat was melting the asphalt but there was Tom, smiling and laughing, under his sun umbrella. He was there all day and it was a LONG day. 

I next met Tom when he took my tentative idea of Little Free Food Pantries for East Missoula and turned it into a beautiful reality. With the help of Cheri and Steve Thompson of Seeley Lake, Tom and his wife Carolyn designed, constructed, and hand delivered the most charming food pantries.

We now have them installed in Clinton, West Riverside, and East Missoula, along with Tom’s Little Free Libraries in Turah and Seeley Lake 

Tom is unfailing in his pure desire to help his community and unwavering in his dedication to us all. His first reaction to all inquiries is “How Can I Help?” 

My endorsement of Tom goes beyond political parties. When you vote for Tom Browder for House 92, you are voting for honor, kindness, and hard work. 

Community Matters and Kindness Matters, now more than ever.
