Marty Moyer’s devotion to making Washington County a better place for all to live, work and play today, and to preserve livability for future generations, has earned her the 16th annual Harold M. Haynes Citizen Involvement Award honoring outstanding leadership in engaging community members in civic affairs.
The Committee for Citizen Involvement (CCI) will present the award at 6 p.m. Tuesday, June 18, 2013, in the Cafeteria of the Washington County Public Services Building, 155 N. 1st Ave., Hillsboro. The event is open to the public and refreshments will be provided.
“Marty’s a champion for Citizen Participation Organization 7, affordable housing and homelessness, parks, and roads,” said County Commissioner Greg Malinowski. “She is a model for empowered community representation and advocacy.”
Moyer, a Bethany resident, was on the Tualatin Hills Park and Recreation District team that planned the park adjacent to Portland Community College-Rock Creek. She also served on the hiring panel to select the PCC Public Involvement Bond Manager.
Moyer has lobbied for affordable housing in Washington County, regularly volunteers at a homeless shelter, and serves on the steering committee for the Interfaith Committee on Homelessness.
“One of the things I brought to my CPO is an understanding that homelessness is a problem in the county,” Moyer said.
“Marty has made organizations like CPO 7 and the CCI stronger as a result of her giving, and being so active on several other committees,” said Mary Manseau and Kevin O’Donnell, past and present CPO 7 Chairs. “She serves as a conduit for information and neighborhood concerns, and is one of our main contacts with our PCC Rock Creek neighbors.”
Haynes Award nominations are submitted to the CCI for a vote by ballot. CCI members recognized that each candidate was worthy of the honor and Chair Henry Oberhelman wishes to thank all the distinguished nominees for their accomplishments and contributions to Washington County:
The award was initiated in 1998 following the untimely death of Dr. Harold M. Haynes of Forest Grove. Haynes was a citizen statesman and constant advocate for state land use Goal 1, requiring Citizen Involvement in all phases of planning.
