  • Missoula County - The Last Best Place

    Dave Strohmaier and Juanita Vero and Josh Slotnick, Missoula County Commissioners|Sep 12, 2019

    It really goes without saying, but Missoula County is an amazing place. And in a county that is home to 119,000 souls, spanning terrain from rugged wilderness to the second largest city in Montana, county government plays an important role in our day-to-day lives, whether we realize it or not. Over the next year, to better communicate the many facets of county government (arguably one of the least understood levels of government), Missoula County elected officials will contribute monthly...

  • Don't take life for granted

    Dave Strohmaier, Missoula County Commissioner|Apr 4, 2019

    MISSOULA - They call it the widow maker. It’s also called the left anterior descending (LAD) artery and one year ago mine was almost completely blocked. Had my occlusion been total, I’d likely not be penning these words today, which explains the artery’s nickname. The cautionary tale is that I didn’t see it coming. I have no family history of coronary artery disease. My annual physical exams and periodic health screenings didn’t pick up any red flags of high cholesterol or high blood pressure. And I’m fairly active. I noticed my first sympt...

  • Shedding Light on Missoula County Government

    Dave Strohmaier, Missoula County Commissioner|Jun 15, 2017

    MISSOULA - It’s been a whirlwind five months. I’ve learned plenty since I took office in January, so I thought it was time to let Pathfinder readers know what I’ve been up to and try to shed a little light on county government, which I believe is one of the least understood levels of government in Montana. With nearly 900 employees spread out across myriad departments, Missoula County government—an arm of state government—provides an array of services from district court clerk support to staffing a county-wide Office of Emergency Managemen...

    Dave Strohmaier, Democratic Candidate for Missoula County Commissioner|Oct 13, 2016

    MISSOULA - For those of you who don't know me, I am Dave Strohmaier and I'm running to be your next Missoula County commissioner. I'm a Democrat and father of two school-age kids. My wife is on the staff of Holy Spirit Episcopal Church. I'm running because I firmly believe that it's our duty to give back to our communities through public service.

  • Leadership and Vision for the Future

    Dave Strohmaier, Democratic Candidate for Missoula County Commissioner|May 5, 2016

    Missoula County is a great place to live and raise a family, but to keep it that way we need leadership with a clear vision for the future, rooted in stewardship for this place, which is why I'm running to become your next Missoula County Commissioner. As a former wildland firefighter, I know a thing or two about hard work and leadership, even amidst sharp differences of opinion-attributes that are desperately needed in county government and throughout our community. I'm running for my two child...
