The city of Missoula is considering adding a new paid staff position that would work on advocating sexual assault prevention and awareness with local stakeholders, community leaders and inside Missoula’s public school system. The position is similar to one already occupied by a Missoula county representative, but instead of being focused on rural areas and paid through grant funds, the new position would focus on the city and be paid by local taxpayers. In the following interview Shantelle Gaynor, who works as as a Grants Administrator with the Missoula office of Planning and Grant,  explains how the position could help to reduce costs to the city and goes into some of the details of what the job would entail.

Gaynor says the additional position would be “a little bit of a revolution “and that “our community would be taking a concrete stand” on the issue of sexual assault.
