Sometimes Bridger carries bear spray, but not to public meetings.
Originally from the railroad town turned fly fishing capital of Livingston, Montana, Bridger offers a perspective grounded in community development. His master’s degree is in urban and regional planning from Portland State University where he coordinated a grant program for community-based projects to improve watershed health. He now supports planning, permitting and public involvement for energy infrastructure, coordinates a campaign to protect rivers and streams and supports a public process to update how signs are regulated. Bridger lives with his lovely wife and daughter in SE Portland—the perfect staging ground for any adventure.
