I have 22 years experience in financial procedures while working for two Fortune 500 companies. With my experience and education, I am the most qualified candidate for the position of Union County Treasurer. I would maintain all financial records as required by Arkansas State Law keeping an accurate and detailed account of all receipts and disbursements. I would be a good steward of taxpayers funds and invest in the best manner for the taxpayers, with total transparency. I vow to provide the best service at the lowest cost to the taxpayers.
