I began my service to Washington County residents in 1997 as deputy treasurer and was promoted to chief deputy treasurer at the end of 2008. I served in that capacity until being elected your Washington County Treasurer in 2014.
I'm a lifelong Arkansan, spending the past 22 years in Washington County. In 1990, I graduated from the University of Central Arkansas with a Bachelor of Science degree in Political Science and a minor in journalism. My wife, Pam, and I have been married 25 years and have three children.
Saving taxpayer dollars whenever possible is taken seriously in the Treasurer's office. I cut my 2016 budgets by 6.5%, which includes a 25% reduction in non-personnel costs. Also, by using our in-house IT department, we've constructed a new, more secure database for 2016, saving thousands in annual costs. Finally, in 2015, interest returns increased 18% compared to 2014. We're currently on pace for a 37% jump over 2015!!
Transparency is a must when dealing with public dollars. My door is always open to anyone voicing concerns or to any citizen needing questions answered. Washington County is a great place to live and I'm honored to serve you.
