Assemblyman Marc Butler (R,C,I-Newport) has hired Nancy Martin of Waddington as his St. Lawrence County and North Country representative. The appointment is effective immediately.

“Nancy’s appointment fulfills a campaign promise I made to my St. Lawrence County constituents to have someone in the county to more directly address their needs,” said Butler.

Martin will represent the assemblyman at local meetings and events, help arrange scheduling, handle constituent issues and advise Butler on the many issues facing the county.

“Re-districting dramatically changed my assembly district two years ago; it now encompasses all or parts of five counties throughout upstate and northern New York.”

Butler’s district, the 118th, includes Madrid, Norfolk, Stockholm, Parishville, Pierrepont, Clare, Colton, Clifton, and Fine in St. Lawrence County, and Hamilton, Herkimer and Fulton counties, and part of Oneida County.

“I firmly believe that residents would rather deal with another person, rather than answering machines or faxes. Nancy will be our go-to person in St. Lawrence, which will result in better contact and better service,” Butler said.

“I look forward to helping Assemblyman Butler address the concerns of the constituents in St. Lawrence and the North County,” said Martin.

Martin is the former chair of the St. Lawrence County Republican Committee.

Martin worked as court reporter, and later as a stenographer with the medical laboratory at the St. Lawrence Psychiatric Center. She was subsequently promoted to the Medical Records department, and served as a senior medical clerk and an accredited records technician.

In 1982 she began her tenure at the Department of Correctional Services, serving as principle clerk in personnel and head account clerk at Ogdensburg Correctional Facility. She retired in 2008 as Institutional Steward at Gouverneur Correctional Facility. Most recently, she has worked part time for the Community Bank NA.

Martin lives in Waddington with her husband, Roger, a second-generation dairy farmer. The couple has one daughter and a one-year old grandson.
