The Anderson School District #41 registered voters will be electing one Trustee to a three year term on the May 2, 2017 school election by mail ballot. Ballots will be mailed out by the Gallatin County Elections office on April 17, 2017. Following are the two candidates who have filed for the position:
Jaime June is a mother of three children and actively involved in the maternal health issues within our community. Jaime has a degree in Wildlife Biology from the University of California Davis and a follow up certificate of Lactation studies from the University of California San Diego. Currently Jaime works for the Billings Clinic Hospital in Billings and has a private practice in Bozeman as an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC).
After graduating college Jaime was a restoration ecologist for the National Audubon Society in Winters California. There she worked in partnership with the Center for Land Based Learning to educate high school students about ecological processes and restoration. Working with these students was a wonderful experience, there were kids from rural schools, the inner city, as well as college towns. After getting married and starting a family Jaime and her family found their way to Montana in 2011. Jaime and her Husband Ron wanted their children to attend Anderson school due to its wonderful reputation. Now that her third child will be entering kindergarten in the fall Jaime feels compelled to offer more of her time to the institution. Jaime brings a very levelheaded approach to problem solving and organization. She has shown this in her work with the Montana Mental Health Collective as well as in mediating many projects with land owners and conservationists in her past job. Jaime offers a compassionate ear with a thorough research background that will help her make well guided decisions through appropriate education on the issues. Mostly Jaime would like to give back to the school that is taking such good care of her children.

Jack wishes to serve on the Anderson School board because he wants to have an impact on the great community he lives in – and he believes, as his parents did, this starts with strength in education and sporting activity. When his family relocated to Bozeman they chose their residence based on being within the Anderson School District – and loved it so much they ended up right next door to the school! He’d like to help Anderson reach its full potential and continue to build on its exceptional reputation for generations to come. He specializes in delivering results and developing long lasting relationships.
