I have known Jeff Ament for years and I think it is wonderful that Pearl Jam wants to come out and lend their support and help me raise awareness about my campaign and to help raise the money I will need to defeat a sitting U.S. Senator, said Senate President Jon Tester. I am committed to the people of Montana and pleased that Jeff Ament and Pearl Jam are stepping forward to show their commitment to our future once again.
Jeff Ament, Pearl Jam founding member and bassist, helped to bring this event together because of his ties to Big Sandy, Montana and his commitment to the state's family farmers and underserved communities. Over the past eight years he has been actively involved in Montana including supporting the 1998 Hoopfest as well as being involved in refurbishing sports facilities for Montana Parks and Recreation and building a skateboard park for the Missoula YMCA. Whether supporting Red Feather Development Corporation's efforts or staying abreast of Native American issues throughout the West, Jeff and Pearl Jam are committed to making a difference in this region.
The future of Montana depends on keeping communities in rural Montana alive and well, said band member Jeff Ament. We see too many of our young folks leaving to look for work and a future elsewhere because too many of our small, rural communities are struggling. Electing Jon Tester to the U.S. Senate is one of the best things we can do for the future of Montana and our kids because he will work hard to save our Montana way of life. I'm glad we can do this benefit concert and help Jon win this election.
Pearl Jam has a long tradition of working to engage fans of all ages in the political process. Most recently, they took part in last fall's Vote for Change concert tour as a part of their ongoing work to get young people registered to vote and involved in important issues. This latest effort demonstrates the band's ongoing commitment to exercising their rights and supporting those candidates who they feel will make a difference on the local, state, and federal levels.
