“I don’t think Morningstar should get so much money because not everyone in Big Sky has kids. The free transportation is awesome but it needs to be more limited, and they pay [Skyline] too much. The hockey rink is awesome—keep going with it. The idea of a [recreation] center for everybody with the hockey rink in the winter would be great.”

“Big Sky Community Housing Trust. We are in a housing crisis and we need to address that immediately. We keep creating more and more jobs in this town and less and less housing. … I think it’s hugely important and it’s been an ongoing thing for years now.”

“I would say the Gallatin River Task Force. I’m a fly-fishing guide and I know the value of a clean, healthy river. I think they do a good job of keeping the river healthy for all of us to keep enjoying it.”

“I think more paved bike paths [and] if they could use resort tax to subsidize housing that would be great.”
