USDA Rural Development State Director Maxine Moul today presented a plaque to Mary May, Wallace Village Clerk, for her excellence in service to her community and USDA.

 “It is with great pleasure that we honor a clerk who has helped her Village toward the goal of sustainable infrastructure.  Thank you for your dedicated service,” said Moul.

The North Platte USDA staff nominated May as the Western Nebraska Clerk of the year for her dedication and cooperation.  “Mary’s reports for the Village of Wallace’s water loan are consistent and timely, saving the government time and taxpayer money.  These important resources, time and money, can be properly allocated for important things like clean drinking water and needed infrastructure in Rural America.  One person, one clerk, can make a difference towards our goal of sustainable infrastructure in our rural communities.  Thank you for your dependable, complete reports, as well as your thoughtful cooperation and communication, Mary,” the nomination said.

President Obama’s plan for rural America has brought about historic investment and resulted in stronger rural communities. Under the President’s leadership, these investments in housing, community facilities, businesses and infrastructure have empowered rural America to continue leading the way – strengthening America’s economy, small towns and rural communities. USDA’s investments in rural communities support the rural way of life that stands as the backbone of our American values.
