Wolf Creek in Lewis and Clark County, Montana — The American West (Mountains)
Remembering Governor Forrest H. Anderson
Forrest, a native Montanan, grew up in the depression working hard, raised a family and, through thirty years of the public's trust, served as a county attorney, legislator, supreme court justice, attorney general and governor 1969-1973. His accomplishments in government were many, positively affecting you and me and our future generations by totally reorganizing state government into 21st century management, supporting the enactment of the new Montana State Constitution, establishing the State Law Enforcement Academy, saving millions of our tax dollars by creating the State Board of Investment, just to name a few. Anderson was well respected for saying what he meant and meaning what he said.
His skill in the art of politics was only exceeded by his passion for fishing and hunting. Forest love Craig and the Missouri River, treasures for all of us to protect and enjoy.

What For?" It was aimed directly at Babcock’s support for a sales tax. Anderson won by a solid 54 percent to 42 percent margin. Sage Advertising handled Anderson’s advertising campaign and created the “Pay More? What For?” slogan, said to be Montana’s best ever.
