Jennifer Fielder is a popular, award-winning Montana State Senator and nationally recognized advocate for Liberty. She is well versed in sound business practices, sustainable economics, constitutional governance, and science-based environmental stewardship. Her 8 years as a lawmaker complements two decades of professional planning, design, and project management experience with the types of industries regulated by the PSC -- including railways, pipelines, electric generation, telecommunications, water works, solid waste disposal, and federal energy regulatory proceedings. In addition, Jennifer has managed complex legal and multi-million dollar financial portfolios which have prepared her well for the type of caseload routinely handled by the PSC. Her real-word experience and genuine connection to the people of western Montana have equipped her with a unique skill set unmatched by any other candidate in this race.
Jennifer has not accepted campaign contributions from any industry PAC or special interest group that has an issue likely to come before the PSC. In fact, 80% of her campaign donors are ordinary individual Montanans who live in the western Montana PSC district. As a citizen legislator, Jennifer established herself as one of the rare elected officials who doesn't make backroom deals, doesn't trade votes, fights corruption, and is not afraid to go against the grain of the political establishment. Her integrity is also evidenced by the fact that she has not and will not take any secret meetings with lobbyists or officials of the companies she will be responsible for regulating, nor is she involved with any of the special interest groups seeking to influence PSC actions. When it comes to the companies regulated by the PSC, Fielder is refreshingly independent.
Jennifer is a giver - not a taker. The first time she ran for office in 2012 she pledged half of her legislative salary to charitable causes, and she made good on it. She has a true servant's heart and is a fearless defender of freedom. As a liberty-leaning legislator, Senator Fielder earned an "A" rating for steadfast defense of the 2nd Amendment; received the prestigious "Keeper of the 10th" award from a Montana Agriculture Association for outstanding defense of the rights of the States and the People; and won the 2019 Legislative Appreciation Award from one of Montana's largest sportsmen's organizations for protecting Montana's cherished hunting and harvest heritage. An avid outdoors woman in her own right, Jennifer cares about our environment, values clean air and water, and has volunteered thousands of hours to improve access on public lands.
