In his first State of the State Address Wednesday night, newly-elected Governor Steve Bullock said “it’s been 40 years since the predominant noise emanating from the Governor’s Mansion has been the sound of young children.”
The Montana Historical Society confirms the last time little kids lived in the First Family’s home was when Democratic Governor Tom Judge moved in his two young boys, 5 year-old Tommy and 3 year-old Patrick in 1973.
All Governors since Judge have had children, but none entering the Governor’s Mansion elementary school age or younger.
Want to hear what the Bullock kids think of their new house? Well here ya go:
Pretty much, Caroline, Alex, and Cameron Bullock are pretty stoked they each get their own rooms, with their own bathrooms. And, they got to choose the color of their walls. When I asked Mom and Dad who did the painting, they looked at each other and laughed.
“I’m pretty sure it was General Services,” Governor Bullock said.
