Working for a better Helena.
Chris VanCleave is a proven leader that believes in getting things done. As a leader at one of the nation's top financial institutions, Mr. VanCleave has led teams to achieve operational excellence while saving millions. As chairperson of Helena's Beautification Board, he resurrected the flower basket program, created educational opportunities for citizens by creating spring planting and fall clean up days, engaging citizens in local beautification efforts while teaching the basics of gardening. Chris worked alongside others on the board to solidify a national horticultural trial to help identify sustainable rose cultivars that will benefit consumers across the nation and hosts a thank you luncheon each year for Public Works employees to thank them for their service and partnership. As a nationally known TV personality and speaker, Chris educates the public on growing our national flower, the rose. All this, while rarely missing a Helena City Council meeting in the past 7 years.
"You are what you do, not what you say you'll do."
