My name is Barry Usher, and I am running to be the next Representative for Montana’s House District 40.
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. We have 4 children, Jenn, 31, Katie, 25, Brian, 24, and Hannah, 12 and 3 grandchildren, Daniel 2, Reagan 1 and Barry (newborn)
After my tenure with the Coast Guard, I spent 14 years in law enforcement. I am the current Past Chapter Chair for Big Sky Young Presidents’ Organization (YPO), a member of Big Sky World Presidents Organization (WPO), a lifetime member of the National Rifle Association (NRA), a current member of the National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB), Billings Chamber of Commerce, Red Lodge Chamber of Commerce and the Cody Chamber of Commerce. In the past, I was a Board Member and President of the Metra Park Board, 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 and a Partner in Maui Wishes & Adventures) with a personal history in both law enforcement and service to our country, I am running for Montana State House 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 House District 40.
