Today, I am announcing my candidacy for Vermilion County Auditor. I feel that it is the right time for people of my generation to step up into leadership roles in our County, working for a bright future. The Auditor’s position is an exciting opportunity and my professional credentials are well suited to taking on this role.
I have a strong background in Accounting, graduating Magna Cum Laude with a Major in Accounting and a Minor in Forensic Accounting from Indiana State University in 2016. In the private sector, I have work experience in the Accounting Department at Fiberteq Industries. In 2017, I was hired as the County’s Financial Resources Director. For over the last 2 and a half years, I’ve acquired an intimate knowledge of the County’s financial system, providing detailed revenue and expenditure reports to the County Board on a monthly basis. I have been the County Board Chairman’s chief advisor on County fiscal policy. I have, additionally, through helping formulate department budgets, formed a strong working relationship with all the department heads and elected officials in the County which would benefit anyone taking on this role. Finally, I played a key role in selecting and implementing the County’s new financial system software.
I am a lifelong resident of Vermilion County. I have a strong love and attachment for Vermilion County and want to see it flourish. I believe in community service and have had the opportunity to serve on the Danville Library Foundation’s Board of Directors. I was a participant in the Vermilion Advantage Leadership Tomorrow Program. I am excited for the future and I am ready to take on this leadership role. That is why today, I am announcing my candidacy for Vermilion County Auditor.
