It has been my privilege to serve as your Yakima County Treasurer for the last 16 years, and I look forward to another 4 years. I respect the responsibility of providing leadership over this operation, which serves over 100 different agencies, handles in excess of $2 billion annually and manages an investment portfolio of over $400 million.
My commitment to protecting the public’s trust while continuing to serve taxpayers effectively and efficiently will always be my number one priority. I will continue to implement new methods and technology to enhance our operations and provide a valued service to the community.
