My Experience

The Treasurer’s Office has a predominantly process-driven administrative role. Independent election of the constitutional office is important to retain flexibilty in balancing the needs of the county and those of individual property owners. I have proactively implemented practices that pursue equity for both county finances and Dane County taxpayers as descried below...
