My name is Barry Usher, and I am running to be the next State Senator for Montana’s 20th District.
As a US Coast Guard Veteran, I have lived in many places across the country including Pennsylvania, Maryland, Florida, Delaware, and California, but I call Montana home, just north of Laurel, with my wife Ann Marie, a retired firefighter who now works for Billings Catholic Schools as a substitute teacher. We have 4 children, Jenn, 29, Katie, 23, Brian, 21, and Hannah, 9.
After my tenure with the Coast Guard, I spent 14 years in law enforcement. I am the current incoming chapter chair for Big Sky Young Presidents’ Organization (YPO), a lifetime member of the National Rifle Association (NRA), a current member of the National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB), and am finishing my tenure as the President of the Metra Park Advisory Board. In the past, I was a member of the Knights of Columbus, and served as the President of both the Red Lodge Area Chamber of Commerce, and the Red Lodge Area Economic Development Corporation.
As a business owner (I’m currently the owner and President of the Beartooth Harley-Davidson) with a personal history in both law enforcement and service to our country, I am running for Montana State Senate to bring common sense back into politics. I’m not a career politician, nor do I want to be one. However, I firmly believe that both in Montana and in our country, we’ve lost track of our core values, and consequently, of what is truly important. I believe in smaller government, lower taxes, and more jobs, and I hope to earn the support of the people of Senate District 20.
