“Nobody should have to go through this”: Governor Gianforte meets with tired and desperate Fromberg residents

ERIC YOUNG

FROMBERG — A week after local efforts to repair damaged homes and equipment started following a massive flood, Fromberg residents got the chance Tuesday to tell Gov. Greg Gianforte what they’ve experienced from the massive flooding last week and ask at a town hall what’s being done for them.

“Your community was, on a percentage basis, probably impacted more than any other community in this whole deal,” Gianforte told those in attendance. “We’re resilient as Montanans but nobody should have to go through this.”

At Fromberg school, he updated the residents in attendance on work being done with FEMA, the USDA and other state programs to raise funding for future repairs and consolidate resources.

Dozens of locals in attendance made clear their needs, experiences and what else needed to be done.

Fromberg resident and rancher Jay Stetson told the governor improved communication was needed from state offices and that calls to agencies have been going directly to voicemail.
