The Grays Harbor Treasurer's Office is like the bank for local taxing districts. As County Treasurer, my two most important tasks are to take good care of your tax money while it is in the Treasurer's Office, and to distribute it fairly to the fire districts, school districts and other taxing districts that serve you.
I will administer the duties of County Treasurer in accordance with State laws, local ordinances and best practices.
I am the best candidate for this position due to my dedication to the community, and my education and banking experience. I look forward to continuing to serve you as Treasurer. I appreciate your vote.
