Best Local Politician

Mayor John Engen

Readers' Pick

An Indy reporter recently spotted Mayor Engen near the pharmacy counter at Safeway on West Broadway. A small child walked up to him and asked, “Do you have The Stinky Cheese Man book?” Engen let out his booming laugh and answered, “Why, yes, I read you that book.” Visits with schoolchildren and easy approachability go a long way toward making Engen Missoula’s favorite politician year after year. But it doesn’t stop there. He’s also a fiscally responsible leader capable of keeping a straight face while presiding over hours of periodically contentious and frequently ridiculous debate during Missoula City Council meetings.
