|County Legislators Decide Against Moving Forward
With Plan to Eliminate Elected County Treasurer Position
forward a proposal to eliminate the elected County Treasurer position in favor
of an appointed Director of Finance. Ultimately, District 4 Legislator Bryan
Moser was the only vote in favor of moving the proposal to a public referendum.
The vote took place after the board held a public hearing on the subject, where
a number of residents spoke out against the proposal, including former County
Treasurer Vicki Roy (see video here).
During the public hearing, Denise Yost, a Senior Account Clerk at the
Treasurer's office, announced her intention to run for the position as a
Republican candidate in the 2019 election. Current Treasurer Patricia O'Brien
announced in August that she would be retiring at the end of her term and will
not seek re-election.
