Senator Jon Tester (D-MT) got some tough questions Friday as his "Montennial" tour continues. They didn't come from the media but from Kalispell students.

Senator Jon Tester was at Glacier High School in Kalispell Friday morning to talk to students from Glacier, Whitefish, Columbia Falls, Flathead and Stillwater Christian School.

After a brief introduction and background of himself, the senator answered questions ranging from net neutrality and the new tax bill to same-sex marriage and the state of the North Korea situation.

Now this is a true community discussion as opposed to phone call in events.

I hope our other legislators will emulate Sen. Tester's example of true community discussion with a wide range of questions from a diverse group.

Open invitation to all citizens with no editing or pre examining of their questions.

It's the only way we can have a true and open democracy.
