Q: How has the job of county treasurer changed during your 21-year career?
A: At the point in time I took this job over, it was described to me as a part-time job. Essentially, people who were in the position I am in now were known as conservators. In other words, they took in county money and then put the money in some safe place, such as a bank or a demand account. During my tenure, the job has clearly evolved into something much more than conservator. We are now money managers.
