Norfolk County Treasurer

Four counties are electing County Treasurer. Like the County Commissioners, the Treasurer’s duties vary according to county. In general, the County Treasurer is responsible for the custody and management of the funds of the county government, including departments directly under the County Commissioners, the autonomous Registry of Deeds, and other county entities (such as County Agricultural High Schools).

What are the principal challenges you will face in the next term and how will you address them?

Michael began his career in politics as a member of the Massachusetts House of Representative from the 1st Norfolk District where he held office from 1993-1999. In 1999 Bellotti was elected Sheriff of Norfolk County, a position he held for nearly 20 years. In 2018 Michael assumed the position of President of Quincy College. Michael is the son of Francis X. Bellotti, the Commonwealth’s former Lieutenant Governor. I’ve spent my career not running from challenges but heading towards them.
I developed multimillion-dollar budgets as, Norfolk Sheriff's Dep. & as President of Quincy College, focused on delivering the best possible services for our County in harsh economic conditions. The Norfolk Sheriff’s Office was also one of 15 agencies nationwide to be recognized and chosen by the U.S. Justice Department for a major grant to develop re-entry programs for those who served their time and were reentering the community.
I am very excited to work towards progressive change while focusing on transparency, accountability, and fiscal responsibility. There is no doubt about it- the realities of our current financial situation are serious due to COVID-19. It requires all offices of our local government to strike the delicate balance of efficiency and fiscal responsibility while delivering the services our residents depend on.
