The following is a statement submitted to the Congressional Record:



Mr. DAINES. Mr. President, today I have the distinct honor of recognizing Jane Lee Hamman of Jefferson County as Montanan of the Month for her patriotism and dedication to serving her community, state and nation.

Jane’s selfless contributions began at a young age when she started volunteering for Meals on Wheels with her parents. Jane also joined her parents in supporting Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and the civil rights movement, believing in equal opportunity and advancements for all people based on their character, not the color of their skin. Her life mantra is, “living to advance freedom, knowledge and justice for all.” I think I speak for all who know her when I say she truly embraces these ideals. 

Jane’s love for her country is on full display in her monthly column she writes for the Boulder Monitor newspaper. The goal of Jane’s column is to preserve liberty, educate readers about America’s vision of the Declaration of Independence and celebrate our Constitution. She also shares her values of patriotism and volunteerism with others while serving as the lay leader of the Clancy United Methodist Church and as the Oro Fino Chapter Registrar of the Daughters’ of the American Revolution. Additionally, Jane has been appointed by Governor Greg Gianforte to the Montana State Board of Education and is the chair for the North Jefferson County Public Library District Board of Trustees. 

I have no doubt that her love for the great State of Montana and the United States of America influences every person she meets. It is my honor to recognize Jane for her commitment to serving her community, state and country while spreading Montana values of service and patriotism. Keep up the great work, Jane!
