New Gallatin City County Health Officer Approved, Replacing Matt Kelley

“You take opportunities as they arise and as you can see when you can serve the community in a different way,” Christenson says. This time, Kelley wasn’t present and Lori Christenson was stepping into his shoes. Talking with MTN’s Cody Boyer moments after county commissioners approved her appointment, Christenson says there’s a lot to work on but even more to work with.

“I would be not truthful if I did not say that I’m a little bit nervous,” Christenson says. And now, starting with the county commission approval Tuesday morning, the county has a new health officer.

Cody Boyer It was in the same Community Room of the Gallatin County Building more than a year ago, March 2020, when now former-Gallatin City-County Health Officer Matt Kelley first told everybody that Gallatin County not only had COVID-19 but we were the first in the state to have a case confirmed.

“I’ve worked closely with Lori over the years and I’ve found her to be a great partner, I’ve found her to be a good leader,” O’Callaghan says. “I’ve found her to operate with integrity.” As for Christenson – she says the challenges are not unknown to her, from what the pandemic has taught us to ever-ballooning growth. But one other, Sean O’Callaghan, Gallatin County Planning Director, spoke about years of working with Christenson.

“Perhaps it would be in the public’s interest if you would wait a week,” says one Gallatin County resident, who referred to a time where he had difficulty with the Department of Environmental Health. “I know you’ve interviewed the candidates for this job but I don’t know if you’ve interviewed anybody who has used the system.” “The example that the county commission gave today in terms of finding opportunities to partner as we work through the interlocal agreement, I think that’s excellent to really establish a relationship,” Christenson says.
