Governor Greg Gianforte and Department of Administration Director Misty Ann Giles today recognized state employees who have gone above and beyond in their service to the people of Montana with the Governor’s Awards for Excellence.
“One of the guiding principles of our administration is changing the way Helena does business to better serve its customers, the people of Montana,” Governor Gianforte said. “When we see state employees providing Montanans with exceptional service, we want to recognize them, and that’s what today is all about.”
Recipients of the awards range from teams with a singular mission to individuals who enhanced the workings of state government and implement cost-saving measures.
Recipients of the Governor’s Awards for Excellence include:
- The Income Tax Relief Team, for delivering Montanans up to $1,250 in income tax rebates this summer and processing over 443,000 payments over eight days.
