From Shane Morigeau for State Auditor 

Lame Deer — The Northern Cheyenne Tribal Council has endorsed state representative Shane Morigeau as Montana’s next state auditor. Morigeau, as both an elected representative and as an attorney representing the Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes, has long advocated for promoting business growth, protecting Montanans from investment fraud, fighting to ensure that health insurance rates are fair and affordable, and keeping public lands in public hands.

“The Northern Cheyenne Tribal Council unanimously endorsed Shane because we believe he will be a champion for all Montanans, including Montana Indians,” said Northern Cheyenne Tribal Councilman Lane Spotted Elk. “Knowing that Shane has already visited every reservation in Montana shows how dedicated he is to ensuring Montana Indians have access to affordable and quality health care and are protected from fraudulent investors. We couldn’t be more proud to endorse a Salish and Kootenai brother to ensure we all have a seat at the table.”

“Montanans want elected officials who can represent all of our communities. I grew up in rural Montana — I understand how critical it is for families to have access to affordable and quality health care outside our urban centers,” said State Representative Shane Morigeau. “As state auditor, I will fight for all Montanans. I’ll hold insurance companies accountable, protect working families from investment fraud, ensure that health insurance rates are fair and affordable, and keep public lands in public hands.”

Morigeau has also been endorsed by U.S. Representative Sharice Davids, one of the first two Native American women ever elected to Congress, and the Rocky Mountain Tribal Leaders Council, which represents eleven tribes across the Rockies.
