Zachary Rose
I want to nominate my husband Zachary for the hardworking man contest because he goes above and beyond to provide for our family. Zachary works in organ donation and contributes to saving a life every day that he works. He works 12 1/2 hours shifts and commutes 3+ hours a day from Oakdale to the Bay Area. He is the sole provider of our home and although he has to sacrifice so much time with our family, he has given me the opportunity to raise our children and to finish my education. He never complains and although I know he’s exhausted on his days off, he is up bright and early with our children, soaking up every moment he can with them. Our children Caleb 4, Aria 2, and Allison 9 weeks, light up when he walks into the room. We are so blessed to have such a hard working man in our lives and he deserves to be recognized for all that he does today and every day.

Matthew Conley
I would like my dad Matthew Conley to be nominated because he has always done whatever it took to provide for his family,still even now working 2 jobs,6 days a week,sometimes 15 hour days. He started working at Heron Doors when he was 20 and worked his way up to shop foreman for 17 yrs.till they closed doors. At that time he went to school and got his trucking license so that he could work,and is still employed with a great company in town called Eldorado Septic, He not only drives the dump truck,there are many long days hes digging in dirt with a shovel for hours,not to mention all the nights and weekends hes called into work for someones septic emergency and he does it without hesitation or complaining. Its not a fun job he does for a living and im sure this was not what he thought he would be doing for work at his age 50,but he does it with style, grace,and a happy face, That man has showed me the meaning of how important it is to have good work ethics,and how to give 100% in doing that job, no matter what job it is,do it right! He went without many of times  over the years,but made sure our mother and us 5 kids never did,and is still working hard to do what it takes…

He is a very special person in my life and I couldn’t live without him!

Hard working is one of the first things that comes to mind when thinking of my dad. In a world where people seem to always find the easy way out, my dad consistently works hard to do things the right way…even if it may be more difficult.

He has been a logger as long as I can remember. This means that all my life he has been up before the sun and comes back home just before dusk where he then puts time in sharpening his chains and ensuring his equipment is ready for the next day. His dedication to the job goes way beyond the borders of the woods.

We all know that logging is one of the most dangerous professions and as a result my dad has lost friends and co-workers over the years, yet at 67 he still puts in the blood and sweat on a daily basis to provide for his family. Even when his body may ache you can see the satisfaction on his dirty face knowing that he earned his paycheck.

Even before logging, my dad worked hard to support his young family as a professional bronc rider where his highest ranking was 5th in the world. I guess you could say that he has always had a thing for dangerous hard work!

When he isn’t out in the woods, watching the PBR, or playing with his dog RIP, my dad chooses to spend his time out on the water bass fishing. A long time ago he even turned that into hard work as he competes on the local bass fishing team tournament circuits where he placed first as recently as February.

In a nutshell, my dad is the greatest example of what it means to work hard and earn what you have while cracking jokes along the way. I am blessed to have been able to grow up making memories with him from the truck rides on the logging roads to the boat rides on the lake. Thanks “Frog Breath” for all that you do and all that you are!

Joshua Newton
My husband works as a paint tech at a collision center in Eldorado Hills CA. We live in Arnold CA. He commutes 3 hours sometimes more to and from work every day to support our family of 4. We are so lucky to have such a dedicated man to take care of us. I know that any and everyone at work would agree that he is the hardest worker. They call him “work hawk”, because he always goes to see if the body men are finished so he can paint. Josh is the most deserving and humble person I’ve ever had in my life. He deserves it all.
