Gallatin County Attorney Moves Into Fourth Term After Election Win

Posted: Updated:
BOZEMAN - Gallatin County Attorney Marty Lambert moves into his fourth term after winning an uncontested race Tuesday night.

Lambert, a Republican, won 98% of voters support, up against no opponents.

A UM law school grad, Lambert has practiced law for 31 years and previously served as deputy Gallatin Co. attorney under current judge and former county attorney Mike Salvagni.

Looking forward to the next four years, Lambert says some of the biggest challenges will be the growth of Gallatin Co., an increase in drug problems, and the need of more crime victim advocate staff in his office.

Lambert says a strong partnership with the Gallatin Co. sheriff is one of the most important factors in his job and keeping up on crime.

"I think that's a very important part of protecting public safety is the relationship between the sheriff and the county attorney and ours is excellent," Lambert said.

Sheriff Brian Gootkin was also elected in an uncontested race on the Republican ticket Tuesday night.

The Secretary of State's office estimates more than 219,000 people voted in Tuesday's primary with more than a dozen precincts yet to fully report at this time.
