Appointed Lt. Governor Randy Pinocci

Randy Pinocci, born in Anaconda in 1964, hails from a family of Italian immigrants who worked at the Anaconda smelter in the 1800s.

His father, Louis Pinocci, spent 27 years at the smelter before transitioning from Democrat to Republican due to his beliefs about the working class. Following his upbringing in a democrat household, Randy delved into politics in the 1990s, advocating for Second Amendment rights. His efforts caught the attention of Conrad Burns, leading to his involvement in a Second Amendment committee within Burns' Senate campaign.

Known for his work with the Montana shooting sports community, Randy now serves as the vice president of the Montana Shooting Sports Association. As a former representative of Great Falls and the Sun River Valley, Randy supported energy-related legislation and eventually pursued a role on the Montana Public Service Commission to address energy concerns and advocate for the construction of a nuclear power plant in Montana to boost local energy production and reduce costs.
