Senator Mark Montigny Presented with Wheelhouse Award

State Senator Mark Montigny was the guest of honor at our Annual Meeting on March 9, 2002. He was recognized for his work in securing funding for the Fishing Partnership Health Plan.

"Senator Mark Montigny has championed the concerns of fishermen and their families throughout Massachusetts. He played a leadership role in the establishment of the Massachusetts Fisheries Recovery Commission to help promote better fisheries research. As a result of a budget initiative created by the Senator, the Fishing Partnership Health Plan has received $2 million in state funding for each of the past five years.

In this year's budget, Senator Montigny worked to ensure that the legislature continue its allegiance to fishermen around the Commonwealth, extending the state's financial commitment through June of 2004. This state funding totaling $14 million aids the Partnership in providing 1700 fishermen and their families with quality, affordable health care.

It is with great pleasure, enormous pride, and overwhelming gratitude that the Massachusetts Fishermen's Partnership presents you, Senator with our first-ever WHEELHOUSE AWARD for extraordinary efforts to safeguard fishing families."
