MISSOULA- A group of Missoulians met with U.S. Rep. Denny Rehberg on Friday at the Missoula Building Industry Association headquarters on South Avenue to discuss a wide range of economic topics. Citizens voiced concerns about topics including banking reform and the national debt.
Missoula Building Industry Association president and business owner Don Garramone said he's grateful political figures in Montana are available to meet one-on-one with the people.
Garramone said Rehberg coming to Missoula is an encouraging step. "At times we feel that there isn't enough being done in order to stimulate the economy through housing, and housing is always one of the number one indicators to get the economy back going. It's been stalled and stalled and we're looking for someone to work with, that we can actually start moving forward," he said.
Garramone said the Missoula Building Industry Association will also meet with Senator Jon Tester to discuss these same economic issues.
Rehberg is slated to address the Montana Republican convention, which is meeting in Missoula, on Friday evening.
