During my 25 years as a successful business owner, I developed a keen eye for details, honed my organizational skills, and demonstrated my ability to uphold fiscal responsibility. I believe that my extensive experience, acquired over the years, makes me the best candidate for the position because the qualifications and duties of treasurer are comparable to those of a business owner.
The duties and responsibilities of both jobs require you to manage accounts, maintain detailed records, apply sound financial and investment practices, prepare timely financial reports, and manage employees.
When people cast their vote for me, I guarantee to honor them by respectfully conducting the duties of the office diligently, ethically, and with the public’s best interest in mind. I will promote a common-sense, conservative approach to government.
How would you describe the primary responsibilities of the position and the office?
The primary responsibility of all elected officials is that of a servant and steward to the public, but I think this is especially significant for the treasurer. The treasurer should be ever-mindful of the taxpayers’ money and have good communication within the county departments.
As chief custodian of all county funds, the responsibility basically lies in three categories: receipt of funds, disbursement of funds, and accounting for the funds.
Is there a specific program or operational change you would make in the next four years to make the office more streamlined, cost- or performance-efficient and customer friendly?
When elected I will actively monitor the day-to-day operations to make sure that our current technology is operational. Things like cross-training staff and implementing technology will be top priorities as we work to provide the best service possible for the taxpayers our customers.
Is there anything else you would like to accomplish or change within the treasurer’s office in the next term if elected?
My initial mission will be to ensure a smooth transition into office and that all policies are followed. I will accomplish this by learning every job in the office. I hope to encourage discussion and receive feedback from the presiding commissioners and other department heads on this topic by instilling an open-door policy.
