Tester opens Eastern Montana office in Glendive

Senator also announces Eastern Montana Field Director

(WASHINGTON, D.C.) – Senator Jon Tester today announced the opening of his eighth office in Montana.  Tester's Glendive office, at 122 West Towne Street, will serve the residents of Glendive, Dawson County and all of Eastern Montana.

"Our number one priority is to make sure Montanans have access to me and my staff—we work for them," Tester said.  "Being a third generation family farmer, I understand the concerns and the needs of folks in Eastern Montana and I hope that this office will allow them to get a hold of us."

Serving as Tester's Regional Field Director will be lifelong Dawson County resident Penny Zimmerman.  Zimmerman has worked for the past 20 years at the Glendive Medical Center.  She has also been involved in the Dawson County Healthy Communities, an organization dedicated to educating drug users, and serves on the board of the Glendive Clothing Company, a community owned clothing store.  Zimmerman is a graduate of Dawson County High   School and was born on a ranch just outside of Glendive.

"Penny knows firsthand the importance of family farms and ranches and she is well-respected in the community.  I'm honored to have her come on board and she will serve the people of our state well," Tester said.

Tester's Glendive Field Office will be open between 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. weekdays and can be contacted at:
