Ravalli Co. gets 2 new commissioners, 1 incumbent stays


HAMILTON, Mont. - It wasn't a good election for two of three incumbent commissioners in Ravalli County.

Commissioner Jeff Burrows hung onto his seat. But Ron Stoltz and Suzy Foss lost to challengers -- Stoltz to Ray Hawk, and Foss to Doug Schallenberger.

"From what I've been told," said Schallenberger, "I'm more of a moderate conservative. I believe in God. I believe in family values."

Schallenberger is a native of the Bitterroot with long ties to agriculture and the timber industry.
