Why are you running for Treasurer?
I was asked by the Republican Party to consider running. My first thought was no. Then I got to thinking I am healthy and I could still share my knowledge and experience with the citizens of Jefferson County. This gave me something exciting to look forward to and a way to serve and give back.
What is your biggest strength as a candidate?
Knowledge and experience. I care deeply for the employees. Because I worked at the County for a number of years before being elected, I know firsthand of some the issues they deal with on a daily basis. I would like to be involved in getting back to “normal” after Covid. I have heard from citizens of some of the problems they have had to deal with. I am a very good communicator.
Why do you want to return to work for Jefferson County government?
I really enjoy working with the public, employees, and other elected officials. I am very proud of my record of honesty and integrity in all the departments I have worked. I feel because I have been an employee and worked into management it gives me first-hand knowledge about making decisions that affects employees.
How do you see the role of Treasurer working with other departments and offices in Jefferson County?
The Treasurer’s office is the county banker and supports other departments. We may need some revisions in the policy due to the hours changing because of Covid. I would like to see about opening the offices more to the public.
Anything else you want voters to know?
I am a native of Colorado, born and raised in Golden. I have been married to Walter since October 17, 1959, have three children, nine grandchildren, and thirteen great grandchildren. I enjoy bowling, Denver Broncos, the Avalanche, attending (or hearing) grandkid’s sporting events and reading books. (My favorite author is James Patterson.) I am dedicated to serving Jefferson County and will bring my knowledge, experience, honesty and common sense to the Office of the Treasurer. I would appreciate your support. Thank you.
