CU teller picked to vie for Montana legislative seat
ANACONDA, Mont. (8/17/09)--A head teller at Southwest Montana Community FCU, Anaconda, Mont., is one of three finalists chosen by Democrats to campaign for the seat of state Rep. Dan Villa in District 86. Kathy Keenan-Swanson, who works in the Anaconda branch of the $71 million asset credit union, will run against former state legislator Red Menahan of Anaconda and Jim Jenner, a video production company owner from Philipsburg (The Montana Standard Aug. 12). Others vying for the position are John Collins, Jim Flynn and Kelly Richards. Precinct members from Anaconda-Deer Lodge and Granite counties at a Tuesday meeting in Philipsburg asked questions and listened to the biographies of six candidates. The most votes went to Jenner, Kennan-Swanson and Menahan. They will have to wait for the counties to choose one to represent the district. Once chosen, the term will be open for election in November, said the newspaper. Keenan-Swanson, who has served on the county's tax appeal, zoning and planning boards, is the daughter of former state Sen. P.J. "Squeek" Keenan. Her daughter, Dayna works for U.S. Sen. Jon Tester. Her sister, Nancy Keegan, is a former Montana legislator and former school superintendent, and ran unsuccessfully for Montana's lone seat in the U.S. House of Representatives. The seat is open because Villa was appointed in June by Gov. Brian Schweitzer as his education policy adviser.
