I’m Denise Baum, your current Representative for House District 47. I’ve proudly served the City of Billings as a law-enforcement officer for 20 years, with the last 14 years as a detective primarily investigating crimes against children. I’ve seen firsthand the devastating impacts of funding cuts to crucial services for our seniors, those with disabilities, counseling services and early childhood intervention programs. Montanans deserve better and I’m ready to go to Helena to fight for a future we can all look forward to.
Following the 2020 census, all Montana Senate and House Districts underwent the process of redistricting, the act of redrawing political boundaries. The 2023 Legislature approved the Districting and Apportionment Commission’s new legislative district maps. My current House District 47 has expanded its boundaries and was renumbered as HD 45, where I am proudly seeking re-election as your representative.
