My name is Nelly Nicol, and I am running for State Auditor. I am a 4th generation Montanan. In fact, my family settled here in Montana before it was declared a state. I come from a large family of military and service professionals. My husband Bill and I have 4 children and we currently live in Billings.

I decided to run for State Auditor after spending many years working in the insurance industry where I observed Montana's small insurance businesses struggle to get started and develop. I have watched consumers struggle to find affordable insurance, and insurance companies struggle to come in and build a viable company in our state. Bigger government and more tax dollars is not the answer. Montanans deserve and consumers are in desperate need of a healthy competitive insurance market in Montana. I decided it's time for someone to run who is interested in effecting real change in the Auditors Office.

I come from a patriotic Marine Corps household, so serving comes natural to me. I currently work at Victory Insurance Company, Inc. Victory is the last privately owned, Montana domiciled, workers' compensation company. I can not emphasis enough the importance of this office. It is intended to protect Montanans.
