Daines Honors Montanan of the Week: Doug Martens of Rosebud County
U.S. SENATE – U.S. Senator Steve Daines today recognized Doug Martens of Rosebud County for his years of service to his community and his recent election to be President of the Montana Association of Counties.
Through his “Montanan of the Week” initiative, each week Daines will highlight a Montanan by submitting a statement of recognition in the official Congressional Record, the document that reflects the official proceedings of Congress.
Daines welcomes anyone to nominate fellow Montanans for Daines’ “Montanan of the Week” program by calling Daines’ office at 202-224-2651 or by filling out the contact form on Daines’ website: HERE.
The following is a statement submitted to the Congressional Record:
Mr. DAINES. Mr. President, this week I have the honor of recognizing Doug Martens of Rosebud County for his years of service to his community and being elected to serve as President of the Montana Association of Counties.
Doug raised his family in Montana and is a proud husband, father, and grandfather. Before serving ten years as a Commissioner in Rosebud County, Doug was a fire warden and President of the Montana Fire Wardens Association. Doug is a dedicated public servant, and at the same time, he runs his family farm and ranch operation outside of Forsyth, Montana.
Doug has also been an outspoken advocate for Montana energy and coal jobs. He has been a passionate leader in this space and continues to help educate Montanans on the importance of coal including the jobs it creates and the energy it produces throughout our Nation.
It is my distinct honor to recognize Doug for his lifetime of service to the people of Rosebud County. I have no doubt his dedication and hard work will continue to serve his community and the Montana Association of Counties exceptionally well.
