Beginning with her very first job with the Social Security Administration as a claims adjudicator, Martha was required to apply law and regulations to decisions that effected people’s lives. Managing Malone’s SBA Small Business Center and the Franklin County Empire Zone involved working with people and determining if they met requirements for benefits.

When Martha chaired the Malone Village Efficiency Study Committee, she made every effort to be fair and to insured everyone had a chance to tell their story. Based on the committee’s work Malone residents voted to remain a village, and Town and Village committed to shared services.
