Superior couple support Magone for Senate District 7 seat

I had met Diane working on ACS Relay for Life but didn’t get to know her well until after the 2016 election when she put out a call for people interested in reactivating the Mineral County Democratic Central Committee.

Over four years I witnessed her quiet but effective leadership and her willingness to involve herself in community activities, attending Hospital Board meetings, Commissioner meetings, working on the Rails to Trails project, and running in the 2014 race as the Democratic candidate for Montana HD14.

I accompanied her as she canvassed homes in Mineral County and observed her genuine interactions with residents of both parties as she listened to their concerns while avoiding partisan conflict.

Now she is the Democratic candidate for Senate District 7 and, sadly, very little personal contact can take place, but she is still meeting and listening to community members whenever or wherever she can.

Diane grew up in the Superior area and after getting a degree in social work and working in Missoula, she returned to Superior to care for her aging father.

Since returning she has consistently been involved in the community. She is a strong advocate for healthcare and our rural critical access hospitals, public schools, public lands and our local small businesses.

My husband and I strongly support Diane Magone for SD 7, she is indefatigable and she will be a strong champion for the people of rural Montana.
