It was truly a
humbling experience when I was elected by the public to serve as Salt Lake
County Treasurer in 2010. Our campaign began in March of 2010 with the hope of
convincing delegates and subsequently voters that although I was not politically
connected, I had the education, financial background, and business experience to
excel as the Treasurer. It was most gratifying to know that our message was
heard and your trust was gained.
I have not
forgotten that trust and have made every effort these past three years to make
improvements to the Treasurer's office. I am confident, and hopefully you will
agree, that the improvements made warrant a second term in office.
Some of our major accomplishments
Total collections have increased by 10% to
over $1.04 billion per year.
Total delinquencies have decreased by 32% to
relief awarded to
qualified recipients increased by 16 % to over $8 million.
Budgets were decreased every year in areas for
which we have control totaling over $140,000.
Strategic investment changes increased
investment income by over $430,000 since 2010.
Staffing has dropped from 29 to
More improvements are
already launched or on the horizon including:
Initiated and wrote revisions to an existing
tax statute that is currently moving through the 2014 legislature where tax
notices may be delivered electronically to those who choose that option which
can save tens of thousands of dollars in printing and postage costs. .
Increased efforts to find those who truly need
and qualify for tax relief .
Synchronizing cash flow requirements with new
investment opportunities will increase yields.
being a presidential election year, our party will need everyone to participate
to ensure success at the polls. I would certainly welcome your vote again as
part of our overall GOP success.
