Like I said, yesterday, we are an organization that is advocating for the development of Montana's vast coal reserves. Coal development would mean tens of thousands of well-paying jobs for Montana in general and Eastern Montana in particular. It would also mean hundreds of millions of dollars in revenue for the state, both from the coal tax AND coal royalties. Also, money from those coal royalties goes into the School Trust Fund. The problem is that environmental groups and the current administration in Washington are strictly opposed to any further coal development in our state, and, through litigation and regulation are seeking to shut down the coal industry. Our presence at county fairs is to help raise awareness to the battle that is already occurring. It is very important that voters elect leaders who are pro-coal development, and that we begin to change the political landscape of Montana so that being anti-coal would receive that same response from voters as being anti-gun.
What I am looking for is someone to man a booth at the Sweetgrass County Fair.
We will pay between $10-15 an hour. Hours are flexible, though we would prefer that our person man the booth for the majority of the fair.
I will send them all of our info (signs, literature, etc.)
I will also send them reading materials to educate themselves on the issues, and I will personally give them some training via a conference call.
We will pay for all related expenses via an expense report that the employee can submit to me after the fair.
Please let me know if anyone would like to do this. Thanks!
