Committee Assignments


I moved to Montana from my Ohio birthplace in 1977 as a college junior to finish my undergraduate degree in forestry, and complete a master's degree in forest economics at the University of Montana. I went on to a career in forest fire research, forest economics, forest management, and fish, wildlife and parks. I raised two daughters in Montana with my wife, Hedvig, who passed away in 2007. In 2014 I remarried. My wife, Melissa, and I now share four adult daughters. We are lucky enough to have three of them living and working in Bozeman, and the fourth takes us to Oregon. Pat was elected to the Montana State Senate in 2018, and served in the 2019 and 2021 Legislative Sessions. In both sessions he was a member of the Senate Finance and Claims, Senate Natural Resources and Senate Fish and Game Committees. During the interim between legislative sessions he has served on the Legislative Audit Committee, the Environmental Quality Council and the Legislative Council. He also served as Minority Whip for the Montana Senate Democratic Caucus in the 2021 Legislature. Why is Pat running? I am running for Senate District 32 to strengthen the reasons why you choose to live, work and recreate in Montana - including a robust public education system, access to affordable health care, and exceptional open access to our rivers and public lands. I bring a lifetime of public-service experience working to address Montana's toughest natural resource issues. With your support, we will translate that problem-solving success into home-grown progress in many other areas.
