Montanans for Bernie
Andy Boyd, 38, is a small business owner in Bozeman. He describes himself as an independent voter who’s never really been into politics, until this year. In May, he started supporting Sanders on Facebook.
“He’s the first politician to get me off my butt,” Boyd said, before launching into a breathless explanation of why he started two groups, Bozeman for Bernie and Montana for Bernie. It is now Montanans for Bernie.
“Bernie voted against the Iraq War in 2002 and he is anti-(Trans-Pacific Partnership) and Hillary is undecided on TPP,” Boyd said. “Hillary has been bought out by corporate America, unfortunately. Her biggest donors are the banks we bailed out and his biggest donors are the unions.”
Boyd isn’t alone. He recently teamed up with Marshall Mayer of Helena, who also started a Sanders Facebook group, to merge their pages and continue recruiting more to the Sanders’ campaign.
“We both started our own Facebook pages and then we combined them,” Boyd said. “It’s been going great ever since then.”
The combined page now has 4,786 likes. While Clinton supporters could be following a national page, for Sanders supporters, the fact that the Montana page for Clinton has just 786 likes is meaningful.
And their efforts are extending past social media into what looks like a nascent field campaign. Sanders supporters have held meetings, marched in a Butte parade, and distributed literature at the Gallatin County Fair and Bozeman’s Community Food Co-op.
“We’ve had three meetups here in Bozeman, each had 25 to 30 people,” Boyd said. He also listed a slew of coming events, including a live webcast with the senator Wednesday at Bar IX, which Boyd already has 30 RSVPs for. Bob Butts is also involved.
Marshall Mayer, was in January 2017, contact for Montana Democratic Socialists of America Organizing Committee.
- After the rally, the sun came out and it warmed up enough for our cameras to work. Here you see DSA members from Kalispell and Columbia Falls (two of only four members from the Flathead Valley, where Whitefish is), plus other members that came from Hot Springs, Missoula, Helena and Bozeman (a 5-hour drive). We were joined by several hundred other penguins. — with Arthur Fretheim, Marshall Mayer, Paul Dock, Bonnie Lambert and Tootie Welker in Whitefish, Montana.
