He currently is an oilfield worker and works as manager of the Buckhorn Bar and Cafe. The Buckhorn is owned by his father, Harold, and his uncle, Charles. Marottek is assisted at the Buckhorn by his wife, Ryan.

The Marotteks, who have three daughters, have been the organizers of an ice fishing tournament and other fishing tournaments for many years.

His community service has included a time of about nine years on the Poplar School Board.

He said he was urged to seek the commissioner position since Commissioner Gary Macdonald is retiring. “I thought I could go on to bigger and better things,” Marottek joked.

He says he isn’t concerned about any particular issue in the county, but he enjoys listening to community input and helping area residents.
