   A fairly newcomer to Montana, Gianforte, a native of Pennsylvania, has lived in  Bozeman for the past 20 years. He is the founder of Right Now Technology which created over 500 jobs in Bozeman, commanding an average wage of $86,000.

   Gianforte’s campaign centers on the premise of “bringing accountability back to state government”. He maintains that the missing ingredient in state government is leadership. He states, “I’ve spent my whole career growing businesses and creating jobs. My plan for Montana: Create opportunities for high wage jobs, cut government regulations, ensure our kids learn the skills for today’s economy, and make state government work better for you.”
