Town Clerk Meghan Martinez received the Colorado Municipal Clerk Association’s (CMCA) award for Outstanding Contribution to their Municipality by a Clerk at their annual conference on October 18. The CMCA’s annual awards program consists of four awards: Clerk of Year, Outstanding Contribution to their Municipality, Outstanding Contribution to CMCA by a Clerk, and Outstanding Contribution to CMCA by a Non-Member. The Outstanding Contribution to their Municipality Award is awarded to the CMCA member that has made a significant contribution to their municipality in their role as the locality’s clerk.
Martinez was nominated for her strong leadership, commitment to the clerk profession, and her dedication to the Frederick community. Most notably, Martinez coordinated and managed three municipal elections within a nine-month period, which included a recall election that included five of seven board members, all while continuing to provide essential public services. As the nomination stated, “Ms. Martinez has never wavered in her leadership and support of the Town of Frederick. More importantly, she was independent and unbiased in her decisions and the election process during the recall. She is always professional, always available to help, and always supportive of the Town’s mission to be Built on What Matters.”
Martinez has been Town Clerk of Frederick for nearly seven years. During that time, she has honed her skills as the Town Clerk, attained her Certified Municipal Clerk designation, and has served in a variety of organizational roles, including supporting several boards and commissions and serving as an integral member of the leadership team. Notably, as liaison for the Frederick Arts Commission, she was instrumental in developing the Town’s Art in Public Places Master Plan in an effort to plan and maintain the town’s public art program and ensure the condition of the town’s art pieces are preserved for the enjoyment of future generations.
