Mayor Andrea Davis has called Missoula home since 1998 when she transferred from Flathead Valley Community College to the University of Montana, where she studied Organizational Communications and Environmental Studies. Andrea has dedicated her 22-year career to building sustainable homes and strong communities. For the past 15 years, she served as the executive director of Homeword. She expanded Homeword into 14 different communities across the state, building thousands of homes that Montanans can afford and providing education for tens of thousands of Missoulians to buy their first home and make informed financial decisions. This has led her to have deep experience in policy creation and implementation, while building relationships on all levels of government and the private sector.
During her professional career, Mayor Davis has held several leadership roles including board member of Missoula Economic Partnership, Chair of NeighborWorks Montana, Chair of the Affordable Housing Advisory Committee for the Federal Home Loan Bank and Chair of Mountain Line. There she worked toward the goal of eliminating all tailpipe emissions by 2035 and helped expand service and frequency serving more Missoulians. Mayor Davis is proud of the work done to create rental and homes for purchase that working Montanans can afford, via innovative building and land use design, and creative financing. Her body of work is reflective of her personal mission which is to find inclusive solutions that exemplify the interrelated reality of our world.
“I am deeply honored to be elected Mayor of Missoula where I can contribute my expertise, relational approach and positive leadership to help move Missoula forward. Let’s go!”
