Montana Conservation Voters (MCV)
"Montana Conservation Voters is excited to support Melissa Romano in her race to be Montana’s next Superintendent of Public Instruction. She is a champion of our public lands, our clean air, our clean water, and our outdoor recreation economy. Melissa will serve all Montanans well as a statewide leader and be a strong voice for conservation on the Land Board. Current superintendent Elsie Arntzen is failing to expand access to public lands and Montanans deserve better."
Montana Federation of Public Employees
"Most Montanans are like Melissa Romano. They feel an intense commitment to our kids’ futures and their public schools. Unfortunately, our current Superintendent of Schools doesn’t seem to share those values. On the other hand, we have Melissa Romano who is an award-winning teacher and leader. She represents Montana values and has proven that she will work every day for every student and defend our state’s commitment to public education.
Parents, educators, and, most importantly, our kids are ready for a Superintendent who will take the job seriously and be a tireless advocate for public education. Without question, Romano is that person.”
Montana Sportsmen Alliance
"The Montana Sportsmen Alliance is proud to endorse Melissa Romano for Montana Superintendent Of Public Instruction. We have known Melissa for some time and have endorsed her before. She shares our values. She knows and understands the North American Model of Wildlife Conservation, the Montana Model, and the Public Trust Doctrine. She understands the importance of her position on the Land Board and shares our desire for more public access. Both fee title and Conservation Easements are part of that process and deserve the attention of board members without playing politics!
