I have filed for Hillsborough County Treasurer and am asking for your support.
The County Treasurer collects the county property tax from municipalities, oversees financial accounts, and invests county funds. The Treasurer is the signatory on the county’s financial accounts and works with the Business Office to maintain the integrity and security of county funds. All income derived from the investments are returned to the Treasury and is used to offset the tax rate.
As a court-appointed guardian of an incapacitated person, I have been a bonded fiduciary for the last 14 years. I both submit annual accounts and examine those of other guardians to ensure that their wards are receiving competent and helpful service. I believe I can diligently and competently serve as County Treasurer.
While I had filed to run for State Representative in District 38, the unexpected entry of a third candidate after my own filing makes continuing to seek the District 38 seat undesirable as divisive and a waste of Democratic resources at this time.
For those of you who don’t know me, I am a retired lawyer living in Antrim. I serve my community as a Planning Board member. I have previously served the town as a Library Trustee, Cemetery Trustee, and vice chair of the Zoning Board of Adjustment. I contribute articles to The Limrik, Antrim’s town quarterly, and have recently published in two online magazines, The Daily Beast and Splice Today.
During the pandemic, we cannot meet in our customary ways. Accordingly, I hope to attend your committee’s meetings online so we may better know each other and so I may become more familiar with the issues facing your town. I look forward to meeting you face-to-face when the plague has passed on.
