What are the main issues you would like to see addressed in the next legislative session?

Including, but not limited to:

• Inflation, we need a coherent and sensible long-term self-sufficient energy policy.

• Resist tax expenditure borrowing policies.

• Effective limited responsible government.

• Property tax relief.

• Life. We must respect all life and compassionately support those who may have slipped in the past, not belittle them with offensive rhetoric.

• Financial literacy at all levels of education. We have failed past generations by not teaching them the fundamental essentials and it shows in our society. I believe that many politicians need training in financial literacy.

• Support our law enforcement personnel.

• First Amendment Rights. I love the quote, “I may disagree with what you have to say but I will defend to the death your right to say it!” And if I disagree with you, I will not advocate the destruction of your life or property.

• Affordable housing and labor shortages.

Why are you the best choice to represent your district?

I have two children and three grandchildren all born, raised and living in Kalispell where I have lived for the past 43 years. Kalispell is our home, we love it here and hope it will be a great place to live for the next 43 years and beyond.

As someone who has had multiple businesses here over the years and served multiple nonprofits, I know a lot about organizational management, relationships, and communications that I will use if elected – y including, but not limited to, financial expertise and ingenuity.

And I’m a team player. Coaching team sports has been and still is a lifelong passion. I believe there is great value in understanding the team dynamics that will benefit serving this great state!

I appreciate your support and contribution in advance. Falk fights for the freedoms and future of Flathead families.
